    The Harvey River is one of three major river systems flowing into the Peel-Harvey estuary and forms part of the Ramsar-listed Peel-Yalgorup system. The health of the Harvey River directly affects the health of the estuary.

    This project aims to continue long-standing community participation in on-ground river restoration activities at two established demonstration sites along the Harvey River.

    With the help of State NRM Program funding, the project will continue to restore ecological values of the river while providing a program of community engagement aimed at promoting awareness of ecological issues associated with river systems in the Harvey River basin.

    Objectives of the project are:

    • identify and remove invasive weed species at demonstration sites
    • revegetate using local species
    • improve river function through bank revetment (protective linings) and in-stream works
    • establish awareness-raising activities around demonstration sites.
    Investment: $ 25 572
    Delivery organisation: Harvey River Restoration Taskforce
    Project duration: January 2012 - January 2013
    Location: Harvey River, shires of Harvey and Waroona
