A creek runs though it

As ANU rebuilds to become a campus in rather than on its landscape DVC Marnie Hughes Warrington is recording the process in a series of essays that lay the foundations for a chapter in a future history of the campus. This month she  writes about the transformation of a “desulatory dribble” of a campus creek into a home for wildlife instead of a shopping trolley and abandoned bikes. It is about taking the skills of planners and engineers and recreating an environment that is home to platypus and swans now and honours the memory of the Indigenous Australians who lived by and with the creek in the past.
