Environmental Water Releases - Winter Update

Oct 29, 2017
EWR Winter Update


Did you know? 

Before Russell Peucker and Kevin and Jenny Bolwell's sighting of the Peron's Tree Frog, the only other report of the frog in the Wimmera was in 2009, when researchers recorded its call at Laharum on the fringe of the Grampians National Park. Current distribution maps have the species living in lowland areas north and east of the Wimmera.

Stories link to the creek

In the book We Rang the Bell at Dingley Dell, commemorating the Burnt Creek State School that opened in 1872, most of the stories link to the creekside shenanigans that happened on the way to and from school.

“Most kids trekked along the creek and what they remember growing up in this area all links to the creek - the wildflowers, the birds and the animals. It’s so important to have environmental water for the birds and critters. We’ve just got to keep as much of this alive as we can.”

Environmental water releases in Burnt Creek are part of the Victorian Environmental Water Holder’s Seasonal Watering Plan, which aims to improve river and wetland health across the state.
