    Jam Patch is one of a few remaining bush land sites in the shire of Lake Grace.

    At 202 hectares, it represents a significant amount of relatively untouched bushland and is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna.

    The area is well used by the surrounding community.

    This project will help protect the bushland by:

    • planning and creating formal walk trails for visitors
    • removing, repairing and improving existing infrastructure
    • providing educational information about the area

    A comprehensive register of local flora and fauna in Jam Patch will also be created and a friends-group 'Friends of the Jam Patch' will be formed to assist with on-ground works and ongoing management of the site.

    Investment: $ 40 250
    Delivery organisation: Lake Grace Land Conservation District Committee
    Project duration: December 2012 - December 2014
    Location: Reserve number 23881, Williams location 10983, Kuender Road, North Lake Grace WA 6353
