Council Awarded Grant To Enhance Campbells Wetland
Friday, 07 May 2021Griffith City Council is set to undertake work to improve the walkway at Campbell’s Wetland after being awarded The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife’s (FNPW) Community Conservation Grant.
The grant will allow Council to carry out weed spraying/slashing, direct seeding and tree planting to enhance the walkway from the carpark to the boardwalk at Campbell’s Wetland.
The charity partner of Australia’s National Parks, FNPW has a national focus on “Creating Parks and Saving Species,” selecting Griffith City Council because of its commitment to supporting Australia’s conservation efforts for generations to come.
Council’s Director Sustainable Development, Phil Harding, said that this grant would be vital to progressing their project to help restore habitat and improve visitors overall experience at Campbell’s Wetland.
“We’re very thankful to the FNPW for its support with a community grant and are looking forward to playing a vital role in preserving and regenerating Australia’s natural environment,” said Mr Harding.
FNPW is focused on helping fund projects that have a direct conservation outcome, an environmental education program and support Australia’s cultural heritage.
FNPW CEO, Ian Darbyshire said, “The purpose of our community grants is to assist in the protection of our native species, habitats, landscapes and cultural heritage. Revegetation of Campbell’s Wetland Walkway is an example of the proactive work being done by our local communities around the country.”
Over the coming 12 months, the Revegetation of Campbell’s Wetland Walkway will not only improve the aesthetics when walking along the track but it will also improve the existing vegetation for our native animals in the Griffith area.
