Berrigan Celebrates Tank Paddock Enhancements

The Berrigan community braved this month’s recent hot weather to celebrate the recent works at Tank Paddock.

The works include the planting of local woodland vegetation, the installation of a bird hide, and the installation of interpretive signage.

Project officer with the Murray Darling Wetlands Working Group, Susanne Watkins, said the new developments further enhanced a valuable natural asset in the Berrigan area.

“Historically an important water supply for drovers passing through the area, Tank Paddock later became the location of the town’s water supply,” she said.

“In recent years, it has been turned into a nature reserve through the hard work of the community, including tree planting days and the construction of paths to encourage recreational use within the site.

“The area is regularly used for school cross-country races, and by netball and football clubs for training.”

The works were undertaken as part of the Murray Wetland Carbon Storage Project, a partnership between Murray Local Land Services and the Murray Darling Wetlands Working Group. They were funded by the Australian Government, and supported by Berrigan Shire Council and the Berrigan Conservation Group and Tidy Town Committee

The evening began with a Welcome to Country by Bangarang Elder Freddie Dowling, followed by Murray Darling Wetlands Working Group’s Sarah Ning explaining the importance of wetlands. Later, Threatened Species Officer with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, Dr Helen Waudby, enthralled all with her talk on local frogs and bats.

The event also featured a launch of the Wetland Champion Booklet Bill and Cecily’s Farm. Written by students from St Columba’s Primary School with Petaurus Education Group, the book features Murray Wetland Carbon Storage Project landholders Bill and Cecily Nixon talking about their wetland at Savernake and the work they have done through the project to rehabilitate it.

It is hoped that the event will make the community aware of the importance of wetlands and encourage the community to use this special place in the heart of Berrigan.
