    Nicholson Road billabong is a waterbird breeding habitat in the Canning River Regional Park. The billabong has high conservation value.

    With the help of State NRM Program funding, this project aims to eradicate exotic plant species on the flood plain of the billabong and revegetate it with endemic understorey plants and sedges.

    Native sedges are required as feeding, nesting and refuge sites, particularly for secretive bird species such as the spotless crake and buff-banded rail.

    Investment: $ 23 815
    Delivery organisation: Canning River Regional Park Volunteers
    Project duration: July 2011 - September 2012
    Location: Off Eastfield Court, Ferndale
