2021-08-14 Reptile Habitat
Rotarians Neil Davis and Graham Brown enjoyed a wonderful morning at the Whitehead Street Wetlands.
The morning was facilitated by Sally Hughes from Corowa District Landcare, being part of a program initiated by the 'Youth, Create and Celebrate' group of Corowa youngsters.
There were about 15 school students present, along with representatives of Corowa District Landcare, Rotary, Apex, Community Gardens and interested teachers and community members. There was also a wildlife ecologist, herpetologist and environmental consultant from CSU - Dr Damien Michael - who was very knowledgeable about reptiles and had written some books on the subject.
The lizard habitat was established - the Apexians assisted the children with the heavy work of lifting and placing of logs and the spreading of bark chips.
Neil and Graham were busy digging holes and planting many Billy Button daisies, Melaleucas and Hardenbergias near the bird hide and the picnic seats.
