    In this project, the Shires of Tammin, Quairading and Cunderdin will collaborate on three integrated natural resource management activities.

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. Contract experienced pest management teams that use a variety of rabbit and fox control options to complement existing programs.
    Investment: $ 50 000
    Delivery organisation: Shire of Quairading
    Project duration: December 2012 - February 2014
    Location: Shires of Quairading, Tammin and Cunderdin
