12095: Restoring the Bickley Brook foreshore upstream of the Bickley Reservoir
Bickley Brook has been identified as one of eight priority catchments for water quality improvement in the Swan River Trust Healthy Rivers Action Plan.
Invasion by exotic weeks upstream of Bickley Reservoir is leading to loss of native foreshore vegetation and habitat. It's important to control these weeds and improve the upstream habitat to reduce downstream impacts.
South East Region Centre for Urban Landcare in partnership with the Department of Sport and Recreation and Water Corporation, aim to:
- develop a weed management plan
- restore river bank vegetation through weeding and revegetation
- develop an educational brochure for visitors and site managers
- commence ongoing training of Bickley Outdoor Recreation Camp staff in weed management and bushland restoration.
