Recent rain has done wonders for the gardens and habitat along Muttama Creek in Cootamundra.
Bushes regularly tended to during the recent drought are flourishing and plenty of birds and animals are calling them home.
Last weekend, the Muttama Creek Regeneration Group held one of their regular working bees planting more trees to create additional habitat to attract a variety of wildlife.
Creek Group president Graeme Johnson is pleased with the way the creek banks are looking.
The remit of the group is to work on the area of land around four metres back from the creek, rather than the creek itself.
They have been responsible for water testing of the creek in the past, however this has not been done by the group for a few years as those members who previously took this on are no longer with the group.
Mr Johnson said there are plans for the group to pick this up again, recognising the importance of regular testing of the town's waterway.
The area the group worked on last weekend is known as the 'Bird Walk' both for the large tin sculptures which line the bank and the native birds which can be found.
Mr Johnson is happy with how previously planted garden beds have progressed.
"Garden beds are bushy enough to be self sufficient, which is what we always aim for," he said.
Other successes of the group include the flourishing River Red Gums planted behind the town pool.
This area has been named by the group the 'River Red Gum' walk.
The group is made up of under a dozen dedicated members with new members always welcome and greatly encouraged.
Previously, families with children have assisted during working bees and school groups have also lent a hand to the group on planting days.
Meeting and working bee dates are updated on the Group's Facebook page with anyone interested in joining encouraged to pop along to either a meeting or a working bee or get in touch with an existing member via the Facebook page.
