    Glen Forrest Primary School is surrounded by jarrah forest.

    Remnant vegetation at the school contains more than 140 local plant species (including one Declared Rare Flora) and provides a link to nearby Nyaania Creek, the Glen Forrest Superblock, and the Glen Forrest Conservation Area.

    This project aims to be a working example of sustainable Landcare to the local community and aims to increase community knowledge of biodiversity and ecosystems.

    Activities include:

    • removal of woody and herbaceous weeds
    • revegetation of a seasonally wet ditch and remnant understories
    • installation of a dieback cleaning station and interpretive signs
    • development of a weed and native plant list
    • educational events including community walks.
    Investment: $ 17 688
    Delivery organisation: Glen Forrest Primary School
    Project duration: January 2014 - December 2015
    Location: Glen Forrest Primary School in the Shire of Mundaring
