Territory and Municipal Services today reminded Canberrans to provide their input into the development of a master plan for the Jerrabomberra Wetlands Nature Reserve.
"The master plan will guide possible development in the Jerrabomberra Wetlands Nature Reserve into the future," Jonathan Miller, Executive Manager, Capital Woodland and Wetlands Conservation Association, said today.
"Following community feedback, a range of actions will be considered for inclusion in the final master plan, including the development of a visitor's centre, picnic areas, lookout tower and a walking track network; improved bird watching facilities; information signage; habitat restoration; and the encouragement of research projects."
Chair of the Jerrabomberra Wetlands Board of Management, Dr Warren Nicholls, said the Jerrabomberra Wetlands master plan will guide the protection and enhancement of the wetlands' significant environmental values while providing recreation and education opportunities for the community.
"The draft master plan sets forward the vision for the future development and restoration of Jerrabomberra Wetlands to become a reserve of national and international interest," Dr Nicholls said.
"I encourage the community to get involved and have their say on the future of one of the region's most valuable wetland habitats.
Consultation closes on Friday 28 September 2012.
