13026: Control of weeds in the catchment of Priest Creek in John Forrest National Park
Priest Creek catchment is located in the south-west corner of John Forrest National Park. The area is zoned for Special Conservation and High Priority Preservation and is an important feeding ground for Carnaby's cockatoos in May and June.
The Creek has three tributaries and is a tributary of Jane Brook.
Vast areas of the Priest Creek catchment were invaded by Watsonia weeds which out-competes native vegetation. Herbicide application over the past five years by the Friends Group has resulted in native vegetation recovery.
This project will continue work to control weeds in the Priest Creek catchment with the aim of protecting declared rare flora Diplolaena andrewsii (Native Wild Rose) and other species that inhabit the area.
