Creating Urban Wetlands Talk

In 2009, Edwina Richardson from the Department of the Environment, Climate Change, Energy and Water discussed a range of wetland initiatives for Canberra’s Inner North, including Banksia St, O’Connor wetlands, Flemington Ponds, Mitchell, and Lyneham and Dickson Wetlands.

Edwina was project managing the redesign & construction of the Banksia St, O’Connor wetlands, which will serve to improve water quality in the Sullivan’s Creek catchment, increase urban biodiversity and provide an urban oasis.

She is eager to consult with and engage the local community.
