Students proud to play role in conservation
Year 4 students from Margaret River Primary School spent last Wednesday morning planting native species along the river as part of Nature Conservation’s “Adopt a Spot” activity.
More than 1000 plants were planted at a property off Kevill Road once infested with arum lilies.
Lucy Sanders said she was proud to be part of a conservation activity. “We were learning about arum lilies at school and we learnt they’re not actually flowers, they’re weeds that take over everything,” she said.
“All the plants we are planting today are native, so it’s good for both animals and the river to help them survive.”
Nature Conservation’s Tracey Muir thanked the landholders for their co-operation and contribution to the project.
