    Lake Preston is part of the Peel-Yalgorup Ramsar wetland system, a coastal saline lake system of international importance. It provides habitat for migratory waterbirds and local fauna.

    This project has obtained funds from several sources to improve a trail that borders and meanders into the wetland system, offering an experience to visitors whilst protecting, supporting maintaining and improving the natural environment.

    State NRM Program funding will be used as part of this project to:

    • install fencing, interpretive signage and a bird viewing platform
    • control weeds and revegetate 7.6ha
    • create an Aboriginal interpretive walk pamphlet
    • hold a community education event.
    Investment: $ 20 000
    Delivery organisation: Shire of Waroona
    Project duration: December 2012 - December 2013
    Location: Lake Preston in the Shire of Waroona
