To showcase the Metung Bushland Reserve behind the Metung Primary School in Stirling Road.
An extensive upgrade has been undertaken including tree planting, signage, picnic facilities, track formation and establishment of exclusion areas to support regeneration of vegetation.
The project has been implemented through the cooperative efforts of Friends of Metung, Friends of the Gippsland Lakes Parks and Reserves and Park Victoria.
There was a walk under the guidance of Bruce McPherson from Forestech and PV rangers provided insight into the project and the potential this Reserve has for Metung’s native flora and fauna.
