This project is an important component of a broader effort to remove weeds from schools in Albany while providing students with an increased education in NRM activities.

Sydney golden wattle and Victorian tea tree will be removed from the grounds of Flinders Park Primary School and the area revegetated with locally native species.

An existing greenhouse located on the school grounds will be repaired for the propagation of native seedlings for this project and future plantings.

Outcomes of the work will be incorporated into the schools teaching program to educate students on weed control, plant propagation, revegetation and biodiversity.

Investment: $ 12 000
Delivery organisation: Flinders Park Primary School
