13093: Enthusiastic eastern flats

    The eastern section of the Katanning district is characterised by broad flat valleys and open woodland.

    Just nine per cent of the original native vegetation remains in the region and this is at threat from salinity and waterlogging. Remaining vegetation, though fragmented, provides habitat for the endangered Carnabys cockatoo and Red tailed phascogale.

    This project will protect 7.4 hectares of remnant vegetation and protect and revegetate 32 hectares of land around Liffie Creek - creating a link between two important reserves.

    Project activities include:

    • planting 8600 local native seedlings (on cleared land and in remnant vegetation)
    • installing 7.9 kilometres of fencing to protect vegetation from stock
    • planting saltbush (landholder-funded) to slow the spread of salt and improve ground cover along Liffie Creek.
    Investment: $ 27 000
    Delivery organisation: Katanning Land Conservation District Committee
    Project duration: March 2014 - March 2015
    Location: Site 1: Peter Caldwell - Wolyaming Road to Caldwell Road, Katanning Site 2: Greg Hobley – Liffie Creek, Nyabing
