Mosaics brighten up wetlands

Four re-purposed old concrete litter bins were turned into “artistic masterpieces” by 35 volunteers at the Lower Silvermine Wetlands’s quarterly work party on Saturday, March 26. The project was funded by Creative Space Art Studio, the Clovelly community market, the Riverine Rovers, and community members who creatively decorated the bins with mosaic indigenous flowers which grow in the wetlands. The bins can be used by the public to sit on and enjoy the beauty of the wetlands. In addition to creating the mosaic bins, volunteers spent time oiling the small wooden bridge, removing alien vegetation, cutting back bushes and shrubs, clearing the paths, fitting new signage and picking up litter.
