Yellowish Sedge-skipper Butterfly recovery planting
28 July 2019
Time: 9.30 am – 12.30 pm
National Tree Day
Help us re-establish the Yellowish Sedge-skipper Butterfly.
This regionally extinct butterfly raises its caterpillars on a single plant species; Thatching Grass (Gahnia filum).
The butterfly used to flourish in Gahnia sedgelands on the northern Adelaide coastal plains. But it has not been seen in the area since 1985.
So, the more Thatching Grass sedgeland we plant in the area the better chance this butterfly has!
Please RSVP by email to Warrick Barnes.
This project is supported by the Adelaide and Mt Lofty Ranges NRM Board, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
The day is run with the City of Salisbury.
