13076: King River and Willyung Creek weed control and riparian restoration

    This project will control weeds and restore vegetation along the King River and Willyung Creek (a tributary) in the south-coastal City of Albany.

    It delivers stage one of a four year weed control plan produced by the City of Albany which identified 15 weed species of major concern. These weeds are rapidly displacing local plant species and habitat along the river's edge.

    Weeds on a five hectare shire reserve and adjacent private properties as well as 25 hectares of riparian land on private property will be controlled. Sedges, rushes and understory species will be used to revegetate two hectares of the King River and Willyung Creek.

    A weed calendar will be produced through this project and the local community will be encouraged to participate in on-ground activities.

    Investment: $ 28 000
    Delivery organisation: King River Weed Control and River restoration Group
    Project duration: February 2014 - July 2015
    Location: King River and Willyung Creek in the City of Albany
