12068: Integrated NRM management - roadside weeds, pest species and sustainable agriculture
In this project, the Shires of Tammin, Quairading and Cunderdin will collaborate on three integrated natural resource management activities.
- Increase adoption of natural resource management practices on-ground through workshops and mentoring. Primarily re-vegetation of agricultural land with fodder shrubs, pastures and/or woody perennials.
- Work with landowners on weed control along roadsides and in shire nature reserves where Weeds of National Significance and priority weeds occur; ensuring control has high efficacy on targeted weeds and low impact on surrounding vegetation.
- Contract experienced pest management teams that use a variety of rabbit and fox control options to complement existing programs.
