Ecologically Sustainable Annandale

Forestry and farming in the 18th and 19th Centuries, followed by residential and industry development denuded Annandale of most of its Local Provenance vegetation. To improve sanitation the creeks were concreted, but the polluted storm water still runs through the creeks to the harbour and motor vehicles pollute the air.

Since 1995 a group of locals, who form the Rozelle Bay Community Native Nursery have propagated plants growing in nearby bushland and reintroduced local provenance vegetation to Annandale.

The Whites Creek wetlands were constructed in 2002, to filter storm water before it entered the harbour. The wetlands now also provide a habitat for turtles, birds, fish and frogs.

Eco-Annandale 2010 - Marghanita da Cruz - www.ramin.com.au Photographs and names of 12 white or pale yellow local provenance flowersThe theme of the Ecologically Sustainable Annandale 2010 Exhibition, earlier this year, was Annandale's biodiversity. This exhibition continues the theme and features works and artists from both the 2010 and 2009 Eco-Annandale exhibitions.

I hope you enjoy the exhibition and please provide us with your comments.

Lizards abound in our municipality and include quite large bar-sided skinks. If you don’t use poisons you will find that lizards are great for pest control
