13085: Darling Downs wetland clean-up and revegetation
Darling Downs wetland is an artificial wetland created by Serpentine Jarrahdale Landcare as a sanctuary for local birdlife. The wetland is part of a 70 acre equestrian and recreational reserve used regularly by local residents and visitors from surrounding Perth suburbs.
Birriga Brook flows through the wetland, continuing down-stream to where it meets the Serpentine River in Baldivis.
This project aims to increase water flow through the wetland and surrounding drainage systems and improve habitat for local plants and animals.
Project activities include:
- weed control along Birriga Brook and in the Darling Downs wetlands area
- wetland clean-up by volunteers in preparation for revegetation
- revegetation of the Darling Downs wetlands area
- installation of informative signs in the wetlands area.
