We've been in previous years and the kids were old hands at digging holes and planting saplings. Amy and I probably planted 20 or so plants - in all the area was re-planted with around 400 native trees.
Highlight of the day for Eli was my discovery of a small skink. It's also worth mentioning the fantastic scones and jam we were all treated to at the end.
It was a beautiful day - the small valley we were situated in was a bit further than we'd been to before into the Cotter. We drove back along the Uriarra Road which I think is one of the most scenic roads near to Canberra. Hopefully the urban spread near Mount Stomlo won't expand too much further.
Here's some pics;
