Plantings at the Stream

We explored the stream early on to see the trees and bushes that had been planted. Much of the stream is shaded which is necessary for the health of the water. Macroinvertebrates cannot survive in really warm water.
There are many willow trees by the stream and quite a lot of bamboo at the north end of the Reserve but there are some native plantings.
We saw that the flax plants that some students in our group had planted when they were in year 2 had grown very tall!
