The network provides volunteer and employment opportunities that contribute to exceptional environmental and community outcomes.

There is a comment back to the Hub regarding the “Name the Wetlands” article about the 3.5 million “trees”. Only approx 10% of those are trees. The rest has been middle to low storey vegetation. Most will grow to knee height once they reach maturity.
