    Jane Brook rises in the Perth hills suburb of Mount Helena and meets the Swan River in Middle Swan. It is an important tributary of the Swan River and home to many native plants and animals.

    This project builds on previous work undertaken along the brook where 11 000 seedlings were planted in Jane Brook Foreshore Reserve in 2011.

    Activities include:

    • planting native species along the brook and its tributaries
    • strengthening existing vegetation corridors by planting more seedlings
    • controlling weeds in the revegetated area and within the surrounding suburb

    This will strengthen existing remnant vegetation along the brook, provide vital habitat for local wildlife, and help restore the ecological function of the waterway, including its ability to remove sediment and nutrients.

    Investment: $ 50 000
    Delivery organisation: Jane Brook Community Association Inc.
    Project duration: January 2013 - December 2014
    Location: Jane Brook foreshore reserve in the City of Swan
