11030: Revegetation of five islands at Mary Carroll Lake, Bush Forever site 124
Mary Carroll Lake is a seasonal wetland that supports large numbers of waterbirds, songbirds, reptiles, turtles and wetland flora. It is an important breeding site for birds and is considered a priority site with high conservation value under the City of Gosnells' biodiversity conservation management plan.
Weed invasion is threatening the health of the lake and surrounding bushland.
Under this project, which is funded by the State NRM Program, more than 4000 local native seedlings will be established and $5000 of weed control will be implemented to address the ecological threat posed by weeds and improve ecological integrity.
