    This project will revegetate and regenerate the limestone heathland of Chalk Hill. The distinctive outcrop is the highest natural point in Kwinana and contains a limestone heath community surrounded by open tuart-banksia woodland.

    As limestone outcrops are limited in the Swan Coastal Plain, these healthland communities are under-represented in the area.

    With the help of State NRM Program funding, project activities will build on works carried out at the Bush Forever site in 2009 and 2010. The works included:

    • earthworks
    • limestone reinforcement
    • site preparation
    • weed control
    • planting of native species local to the area.

    The Medina Residents Group has been actively involved in Bushcare plantings at Chalk Hill for many years, and will continue with their active on-ground assistance.

    Investment: $ 13 000
    Delivery organisation: Town of Kwinana
    Project duration: July 2011 - December 2012
    Location: Chalk Hill, off Beacham Crescent in Medina, Town of Kwinana
