A mix of perfect weather and volunteer spirit formed the blend for a day of planting at the City of Gosnells’ Mary Carroll Park Wetlands.

More than 30 adults and children rolled up their sleeves last weekend to plant 1200 native plants in the degraded area of the wetlands.

Friends of Mary Carroll Wetlands coordinator Unice Robinson said members of Armadale Gosnells Landcare Group and Liddelow Cub Scout Pack joined the group to undertake the mammoth task.

“These plantings bring people together from out of the area and locals,” she said.

“We have a group of people who live close by who always come down and say hello and join us for the morning tea.”

Ms Robinson said the planting sessions also provided a great opportunity for the community to see the wonderful wetlands in all their glory and what was lurking in the waters.
