Parafield Airport hosts the last known array of vernal pools within the Adelaide metro area. What are vernal pools? They are temporary pools of water that provide habitat for distinctive plants and animals. Discovered in 2001, they were assessed to be of high wetland value, with significant flora and uncommon aquatic fauna. Prior to their discovery, they were used for agricultural practices and recreational activities - farming, grazing and even a golf driving range!
CVA volunteers have been engaged to help restore this unique site by addressing issues such as weed management, seed collection and reintroducing local plants.
This is a great opportunity to learn about this rare habitat in the heart of suburbia. Join us on the journey!
Today volunteers will be helping to remove weeds through the centre of the area using both manual (hand pulling) and mechanical (brushcutting) methods in preparation for planting in July.
