Reveg the Flume

It’s time to grab your spade and don your gloves with the annual Reveg the Flume event on July 27.

Coinciding with National Tree Day, Reveg the Flume has seen the community plant over 35,000 native plants since 2003.

This year’s efforts will concentrate on a flat area just east of the Flume car park, with Warrnambool City Council’s parks and gardens team preparing the area beforehand to make planting easier.

Warrnambool City Council Waste Management Officer Kate McInnes said that Reveg the Flume was a simple way to make a tangible contribution to our local environment.

“Lots of locals have a soft spot for the Flume, whether they surf, swim, walk their dogs or just enjoy the scenery there,” she said.

“Reveg the Flume is easy to get into and you can see a real difference year on year.

“I saw an echidna at the dunes over the summer, which you never would have seen before the revegetation works. We have also seen increased numbers of native birds, swamp wallabies and even kangaroos.

“This program is very accessible for everyone and it’s a great morning out for families. We always have fantastic volunteers with great attitudes who have lots of fun.”

The event is run by the Warrnambool Coastcare Landcare group with support from the Warrnambool City Council, Deakin University and the Warrnambool Lions Club.

Reveg the Flume will be on from 10am until noon with a free barbeque to follow.

Attendees are encouraged to assemble in the Flume car park, dress according to the conditions and bring a spade and gloves if they have them.
