    This project aims to remove infestations of Lotus and Couch grass at the end of a corridor that links Nicholson Road Billabong (an important waterbird breeding site) with other project sites in the Canning River Regional Park.

    Removal of Lotus and Couch grass will allow natural regeneration of local plant species, linking the two vegetated areas and contributing to the overall biodiversity of the region.

    It is anticipated that this project will reduce the weed infestation to such an extent that the area can be successfully managed by hand weeding and spot spraying carried out by volunteer labour.

    Investment: $ 18 220
    Delivery organisation: Canning River Regional Park Volunteers
    Project duration: January 2013 - December 2013
    Location: Corner of Nicholson and Metcalf Roads in Ferndale (forming a part of the Canning River Regional Park)
