    Bullcreek is a small tributary of the Canning River in the Perth suburb of Melville. It provides important habitat for a variety of plants and animals.

    The creek is a high contributor of nutrients to the Canning River and is part of the Canning water quality improvement program.

    Activities include:

    • blackberry control and weed management
    • revegetation of weeded areas with a diverse selection of plants endemic to the area
    • up-skilling of community catchment group members on restoration works.
