Minlaton’s Gum Flat is being restored

RESTORING and revegetating Gum Flat, Minlaton, has become a community project involving Minlaton District Early Learning Centre, Minlaton District School, Minlaton Progress Association and Prince Alfred College’s Wambana Campus students.

PAC and MDS have worked to remove the swamp oak trees, replanting native river red gums and indigenous vegetation using materials provided by Yorke Peninsula Council.

“To encourage a sense of community, to promote outdoor activity, nature play and a sense of teamwork and fun, we have been encouraging and ensuring the kindy children participate in the work at Gum Flat,” early learning centre director Tracey Thom said.
