13047: Post fire restoration in the Canning River Regional Park
Post-fire restoration works on an 11.7 hectare section of the Canning River have achieved positive results.
One-off emergency funding from the Swan River Trust following a fire in 2011 allowed the first three years of weed control to occur. Excellent germination of native over-storey species occurred as a result of this.
Understory species have been slower to respond and require on-going weed control to allow natural regeneration.
This project aims to restore understory species in the area to help stabilise banks, provide habitat and prevent further weed invasion.
- continued control of weeds
- planting of understory species (32 000 plants in total)
- national tree planting day event with local schools.
