11054: Control isolated populations of highly invasive environmental weeds in the Warren Catchments Council area
Warren Catchment Council has a strong history of invasive weed control, protecting the regions pristine National Park areas and productive agricultural land.
This project will continue this good work and ensure that residual infestations do not flourish.
Key components of the project are to:
- map weed populations
- build community capacity to recognise invasive weeds
- advise on eradication and control strategies
- coordinate eradication and control activities
In addition to National Parks and reserves, weeds will be controlled in some of the 1300 km of road reserve throughout the Shire of Manjimup.
Volunteers, Weed Action Groups, government departments, the Shire of Manjimup and contractors will be involved in works.
This action will:
- benefit public assets
- protect biodiversity
- reduce the threat of fire
- reduce weed control costs
- enhance the visual amenity and feel of the area
- reduce the potential for weeds to spread onto private property
