13018: Improving connectivity of a regional ecological linkage: Ascot-Rivervale foreshore

    Less than two per-cent of the vegetation originally present in the City of Belmont remains today (excluding the Airport precinct). The majority of this is found along the Swan River foreshore.

    This project aims to improve vegetation connectivity along a 2.4 kilometre stretch of foreshore to provide habitat, increase biodiversity and help stabilise the lower River bank.

    Five sites covering an area of 5400 square meters will be weeded and then revegetated with locally native sedges, groundcovers, herbs, shrubs and trees.

    Woody debris will be installed to protect sedges established on the lower bank from wave action.

    A community planting day will assist in revegetation efforts.

    Investment: $ 13 347
    Delivery organisation: City of Belmont
    Project duration: June 2014 - October 2014
    Location: Swan River foreshore between Ascot and Rivervale
