Discovery Day – Waterways
Tuesday, March 20 – 10:30 am - 12:30 pm$15 – $25
For the first Discovery Day of the year, join us at the Australian Ecosystems Nursery and seed store in Bangholme – next door to Melbourne Water’s Eastern Treatment plant. It is a huge nursery of wetland plants specialising in indigenous plants. They collect seeds from many areas for both wetland and dryland plants. Australian Ecosystems also run a landscaping business and some of their projects include the Victorian Desalination Plant in Wonthaggi, Gum Scrub Creek at Officer and Heritage Henley Golf Course landscaping at Wonga Park. There have been many others through their 18 year history and their website is worth visiting at www.australianecosysyems.com.
At the conclusion of visiting both the nursery and the seed store, we will then visit a nearby wetlands area to enjoy our BYO picnic lunch. After lunch, it is then off to explore the area.
