Etiwanda Wetland interpretive sign and pamphlet

  Etiwanda Wetland interpretive sign and pamphlet
 
The new interpretive sign at Etiwanda Wetlands featuring native plants.

The Etiwanda Wetlands are constructed, urban wetlands that are filled from stormwater runoff after local rainfall. While the wetlands provide a haven for native plants in our urban landscape, the plants treat Mildura’s stormwater by providing a natural filter that improves water quality before it flows out to the Murray River. Wetland plants also provide essential habitat for many native animals such as waterbirds, frogs, fish, bugs and reptiles.

Mildura Rural City Council (MRCC), keen to communicate the environmental values of Etiwanda Wetlands to the community, asked MDFRC to collaborate with Park Douglas Printing to develop a native plant interpretive sign and pamphlet. Through previous projects with MRCC, the MDFRC has an in-depth knowledge and high quality images of the wetlands which allowed us to provide the content for the sign and pamphlet.

Enhancing community understanding of the role of native vegetation in freshwater systems encourages people to care about the places they visit, through appreciation and understanding of local natural features.
