    Chapman river wildlife corridor contains 330ha of remnant vegetation associated with the lower reach of the Chapman River.

    The reserve is vested with the City of Greater Geraldton and has significant conservation, heritage and recreational value.

    The City, alongside partner organisations and community groups, are faced with the increasing challenges of managing the reserve.

    Some of these challenges will be addressed by this project by:

    • rationalising access in the reserve using sustainable trails principles
    • undertaking priority river restoration work
    • engaging Traditional Owners and the wider community in environmental education and awareness initiatives.
    Investment: $ 49 875
    Delivery organisation: City of Greater Geraldton
    Project duration: December 2013 - June 2015
    Location: Chapman River Wildlife Corridor, the western end of the corridor around Spalding Park, Geraldton
