Working Wetlands is an innovative water management project which is currently underway at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne.
The project is the second stage of the Gardens’ water management program. The first stage, Guilfoyle’s Volcano, was completed in March 2010.
Working Wetlands aims to revitalise the lake system and, ultimately, reduce the Gardens’ reliance on potable water for irrigation. A healthy lake system will help protect the Gardens’ priceless plant collections for future generations to enjoy.
