    Queens Park Regional Open Space covers approximately 36 hectares and incorporates Bush Forever sites 283 and 424.

    The area contains two threatened ecological communities as well as declared rare flora. It also provides feeding grounds for black cockatoos, rainbow bee-eaters and eight species of protected jewel beetles.

    This project aims to enhance the condition of vegetation in the bushland in order to protect threatened ecological communities and rare flora and improve habitat for other wildlife.

    Project activities include:

    • weed mapping and weed removal
    • removal of Typha (bulrushes) from a heavily infested lake
    • revegetation of weeded areas with 3000 local provenance seedlings.
    Investment: $ 35 000
    Delivery organisation: Friends of Queens Park Bushland
    Project duration: March 2014 - December 2014
    Location: Queens Park Regional Open Space, in the City of Canning
