12054: Extension of revegetation to the north-west section of Lake Claremont to restore indigenous woodland
Lake Claremont is a conservation category wetland and Bush Forever site. It is also one of few wetland areas left in the western suburbs of Perth.
Friends of Lake Claremont have been revegetating the lake area with the help of two State NRM Program grants and three Caring for Our Country grants. Revegetation works in this project will connect up with previously planted areas.
This project will revegetate a two hectare area north of the lake between Alfred Road and the lakes buffer. The area was previously a golf course (and a rubbish tip before that) and has no understory or mid story and few established trees.
Average plant spacing of 2-3 plants per square metre will be used initially; with the option to infill plant. If infill planting is not required, the area revegetated will be extended. Indigenous species propagated from locally collected seed will be used.
Local community members and schools will assist with planting.
