11041: Controlling weedy acacia species in the Mt Barker Kendenup Rail reserve
This project will target infestations of Sydney golden wattle (Acacia longifolia) and Golden wattle (Acacia pycanatha) along 30 km of railway reserve between Tenterden and Mount Barker.
The railway reserve forms a key biodiversity corridor, as described in the Kendenup Bushland Management Plan, and links the 750 mm rainfall zone of Mt Barker with the 450 mm rainfall zone of Cranbrook.
The Oyster Harbour Catchment Group and Kendenup Bushland Management Group have been actively eradicating both acacia species from the area surrounding this project. This project will build on these activities and will help teach surrounding landholders how to identify and control the species.
