STEPS has worked with Council Biodiversity, Wildlands and other experts over the years. We have developed starter plant lists of ‘naturally occurring’ species for three habitats which occur along Meola Creek:
- Lava Rock forest
- Stream side planting
- Wetland planting
These lists are useful for community plantings and for site re-instatement as improvements take place in the catchment. Thanks to Nick Goldwater and Sel Arbuckle for plant lists. Below is a photo taken by Roy Clements of a wetland community planting.
