Campbell’s Wetland is located approximately 6 km’s north of Griffith, NSW, sitting on the eastern side of Lake Wyangan. Griffith City Council is in the process of restoring Campbell’s Swamp to its former glory by building a new boardwalk and revegetating the walkway from the car park to the wetlands in the hopes of attracting community groups and schools, as well as making it a safer place overall. By planting native trees and having interpretive signs including Wiradjuri traditional uses will make this a very special environmental and cultural learning experience.
This project was funded through generous donations from FNPW supporters across Australia and beyond.
Grant round: Community Conservation Grants 2021
Campbell’s Swamp infrastructure has become old and run down, with the entire boardwalk a safety issue in need of some love. The run down appearance makes it not very appealing to visit, despite it’s popularity amongst bird watching groups. People from all over to country travel to visit and bird watch, as Campbell’s Swamp has been declared as an Important Bird Area, and the entire community is in support of this project.
This project is in collaboration with the Griffith Local Aboriginal Land Council.
