    Bush Forever Site 331 contains some of the last remaining pockets of original Swan River Estuary vegetation.

    The site provides habitat for a variety of local, nomadic and migratory bird species, some of which are endangered, and contains two threatened vegetation communities.

    This project aims to strengthen the health and resilience of the site which is under increasing pressure form land- and water-based recreation and weed infestations.

    Project activities include:

    • weed control
    • revegetation of weeded areas
    • infill planting to restore natural vegetation structure
    • fencing to protect vegetation
    • community education events.
    Investment: $ 26 600
    Delivery organisation: Swan Estuary Reserves Action Group
    Project duration: January 2014 - July 2015
    Location: on the southern banks of the Swan River near Attadale/Alfred Cove foreshores.
