    This project aims to protect assets at Windich and Weld Springs on the Canning Stock Route.

    Windich Spring is a natural watering point used by native animals and people. A historical rock wall constructed in the late 1890's runs along the bank of the spring.

    Works to protect the site will include:

    • erection of fencing along the edge of a cliff adjacent to the spring to  prevent vehicle access
    • installation of information shelters to provide details on the Indigenous and European history of the site and the local wildlife
    • construction of a walk trail around the perimeter of the spring to allow users to safely explore the area.

    Other management actions to control people access to protect native vegetation and cultural heritage sites will be discussed and, once agreed with the traditional owners, constructed.

    Works at Weld Springs also aim to control vehicle and people access and educate visitors with the aim of protecting water quality, vegetation and habitat for native animals. An information shelter similar to that at Windich Springs will be constructed at Weld Springs.

    Investment: $ 50 000
    Delivery organisation: Track Care WA Inc
    Project duration: December 2012 - October 2014
    Location: Windich Springs and Weld Springs on the Canning Stock Route
