    Community members have been restoring the dunes at Mullaloo beach over a period of seven years with the assistance of funds from Coastwest, the State NRM Program and the City of Joondalup.

    The area to be revegetated and maintained is large and under constant pressure from invasive weeds, litter pollution, vandalism and vegetation trampling.

    This project will continue work started in State NRM Program projects 11022 and 12053.

    Weeding will continue in vegetated areas to the east of a dual-use path and around car parks, and extend north into another vegetated area. An area of heavily degraded fore-dune adjacent to a new lookout will also continue to be revegetated.

    The dunes have been fenced to reduce damage caused by people movement.

    • Contract weeders will be employed with the grant money.
    • City of Joondalup will assist at planting days and provide plants.
    • Community volunteers will conduct administration, monitoring, mapping, weeding and planting works.
    Investment: $ 10 000
