    Land managers along Calgardup Brook will be supported to implement on-ground actions (such as fencing, weed and erosion control, and revegetation) to protect and and enhance the Brook. Courtesy G Hanran-Smith.

    Calgardup Brook catchment is located south-west of Margaret River in the Cape to Cape region. The Brook originates in the karri forest near Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and flows in a north-westerly direction, entering the Indian Ocean at Redgate Beach on the Capes coast.

    Threats to the Brook include:

    • degradation of riparian vegetation and stream banks by grazing stock
    • weed infestations
    • erosion
    • impacts of dams on environmental water flows.

    This project will assess and map foreshore condition along Calgardup Brook. A review of upland vegetation in the catchment will also be undertaken to assess ecological connectivity.

    Property-specific actions to protect and enhance the Brook (such as fencing, weed and erosion control, and revegetation) will be prioritised in and provided to all land managers along the waterway.

    Land managers will be actively engaged to better understand the condition of Calgardup Brook and the upland remnant vegetation and supported to implement on-ground actions to protect and improve their condition.

    Investment: $ 50 000
    Delivery organisation: Cape to Cape Catchments Group
    Project duration: January 2013 - December 2014
    Location: Calgardup Brook catchment, south west of Witchcliffe and Margaret River in the Cape to Cape region
