13038: Mt Henry Peninsula biodiversity conservation
Mt Henry Peninsula is located on the northern banks of the Canning River on the grounds of Aquinas College in the Perth suburb of Slater Point.
It's a Bush Forever site (227) and contains a mixture of soils and vegetation types with a high level of plant biodiversity.
Weeds, Phytophthora dieback and feral foxes, cats and rabbits are degrading the health of the reserve and its biodiversity.
This project will use regular bush-care days and after school service learning sessions to get Aquinas College students and their parents involved in activities to help maintain and protect the reserve.
