    This project aims to protect, maintain and enhance peri-urban reserves that contain bushland with high quality native vegetation in the Shire of Denmark.

    Denmark Weed Action Group will reduce, contain and eradicate (where possible) the threat of Weeds of National Significance, Declared plants, local pest plants and other serious environmental weeds.

    Community members will be encouraged to participate in on-ground weed training and demonstrations. Information will also be made available through training sessions, educational displays, weed alert sheets and media articles.

    Local Noongar elders and facilitators will provide information on culturally important sites and conduct two cultural tours to share their knowledge of local native plants and their uses.

    Sites included in this project are covered by the Shire of Denmark Weed Strategy and Action Plan (18 reserves - 100ha), and the Mount Hallowell Management Plan 2008 (532ha).

    Investment: $ 15 000
    Delivery organisation: Denmark Weed Action Group
    Project duration: February 2014 - February 2015
    Location: peri-urban reserves in the Shire of Denmark
