12113: Control of arum lily and blackberry, and site revegetation on the Serpentine River
The Serpentine River is an iconic feature in the district of Serpentine Jarrahdale and holds great cultural and historical significance for the local community.
This project aims to remove weeds from a 200 metre section of the river by:
- mapping weeds over the area (mainly blackberry and arum lily)
- controlling these weeds and their regrowth
- revegetating the area with local native species.
An interpretive sign describing the project and the Aboriginal heritage of the river will be installed in a picnic area adjacent to the site.
A community planting day to revegetate the site will also incorporate an educational session about Aboriginal culture.
