Thornlie Senior High School is working in partnership with Earth Assist to rehabilitate a native bush reserve. A botanist from Earth Assist identified rare and exciting native plants in the reserve. The students and staff hope to weed, replant and establish habitat for native wildlife in the reserve. Wildlife will also be helped through the installation of nesting boxes facilitated through a partnership with Australian Conservation Volunteers.
The school also has plans to collect native seeds and establish a native plant nursery through biology and integrated science classes. The seedlings from the nursery will be used to revegetate the bush reserve and school grounds.
