Greening Mildura members are partway through a project which will see melaleuca tea trees planted at the Bob Corbould Wetland, between Ontario Avenue and the Mildura landfill.

The project is part of a long-term vision for the wetland that could one day incorporate a boardwalk through the native trees and a forest separating the wetland from nearby traffic and the tip.
