    The Railway Reserves Heritage Trail is a vital corridor for wildlife movement in the eastern hills region.

    Several Friends groups are working on different sections of the trail in Mundaring and Kalamunda, controlling weeds that threaten the integrity of the corridor.

    This project will remove woody, herbaceous and bulbous weeds (Watsonia!) in bushland and reserves along the Trail in the section between Sawyers Road and Lion Street in Mount Helena.

    Locally native plants will be propagated to rehabilitate areas where weed removal has left open ground vulnerable to reinvasion of the weeds.

    Investment: $ 13 200
    Delivery organisation: Friends of Pioneer Park
    Project duration: November 2013 - October 2014
    Location: Railway Reserves Heritage Trail, Mundaring
