    Mottram Street Reserve is a 16ha area of bushland near the centre of Manjimup. It's degraded, particularly by high levels of weed infestation, but still valued by the community. Manjin Creek flows through the reserve into the Wilgarup River, a tributary of the Warren River.

    This project is the third stage of a rehabilitation program along the creek and will:

    • engage the local Aboriginal community in planning for the reserve
    • map and control Weeds of National Significance (blackberry, bridal creeper and Montpellier broom) over a 6ha area
    • monitor feral cats and foxes with an infrared camera
    • map 300m of Manjin Creek and conduct bed and bank stabilisation activities
    • plant 8100 local plants over 1.7ha alongside Manjin Creek
    • install interpretive signs
    • establish six photo points for quarterly monitoring.
    Investment: $ 49 200
    Delivery organisation: Shire of Manjimup
    Project duration: November 2012 - June 2014
    Location: Mottram Street Reserve, within the town of Manjimup
