    Many of the wetlands that once existed on the Swan Coastal Plain have been lost and the few remaining are under increasing pressure from development.

    The City of Armadale contains three conservation category wetlands including Cilantro Park wetland.

    Cilantro Park wetland filters nutrients from runoff entering the Wungong and Southern Rivers. It also provides habitat for plants and animals in the increasingly urbanised landscape.

    This project aims to reduce and manage major threats to the wetland and to rehabilitate the site to help maintain its biodiversity.

    Activities include:

    • weed management
    • local-native seed collection
    • revegetation with locally-native seedlings
    • community planting days
    • promoting community of stewardship of the site.
    Investment: $ 20 000
    Delivery organisation: City of Armadale
    Project duration: February 2014 - September 2015
    Location: Cilantro Parkway, Seville Grove (City of Armadale)
