13048: Protection and enhancement of the biodiversity of Booragoon Lake Reserve
This is a continuation of project 11023.
Booragoon Lake Reserve is a 23 hectare reserve situated in the Perth suburb of Booragoon. It is a Bush Forever site and is part of the Beeliar Regional Park. It's also a registered Aboriginal site.
The lake previously acted as a drainage basin for the surrounding urban area and is highly degraded. Despite this, the reserve provides refuge for fauna including long-necked turtles and is an important breeding ground for waterfowl.
This project aims to protect the biodiversity of the lake by controlling weeds (including Japanese pepper trees) in a section of the lake and revegetating weeded areas.
The Friends of Booragoon and Blue Gum Lakes will run two training workshops for new volunteers to assist in the long-term restoration of the reserve.
