Ferrymead Heathcote Saltmarsh

What we do

We are planting species that are appropriate for a saltmarsh and its margins, removing pine trees and gradually expanding the planted margins.

Who are we?

We are a group of locals residents and interested individuals supporting Andrew Crossland, CCC Regional Park Ranger in the restoration of this saltmarsh, returning it to a flourishing ecological niche.

History

This area is CCC land.  The area was disturbed and partially filled during the construction of the Tunnel Road motorway. CCC is restoring the site by allowing the high tide to gently inundate this area and re-establish the original saltmarsh.
