The object of the Floating Wetlands project is to find out which aquatic plants would make the best base for a floating wetland in the Lagoon. This aquaculture tank will be filled with Lagoon water and will be used to test a variety of aquatic plants over the coming months.
Council's Coasts & Catchments team members Jason Ruszczyk and David Hellot are conducting the on-ground activities while CCLF are assisting with community and school awareness.
This project is receiving funding from a grant under the federal Dept of Industry, Innovation & Science's Community Environment Program to be administered by CCLF. The project is also being supported by federal member for Warringah Ms Zali Steggall OAM, MP.
