13096: Restoration of native vegetation in public areas through partnerships and plant salvage
This project aims to develop harvesting and conditioning procedures for successfully salvaging native plants from bushland destined for clearing.
Native plants including grass trees, snottygobbles and zamias will be salvaged from a LandCorp housing development area in Buckingham Park, Collie. Seeds and cuttings will also be collected for propagation in a local nursery.
Plant salvage and propagation will be carried out by a Noongar work team supported by the Shire of Collie, Community Garden and Rotary Club volunteers and a local landscaping company.
Plants salvaged during the project, plus others grown from collected seeds and cuttings, will be used to restore native vegetation in public areas in and around Collie. A native plant enterprise selling salvaged grass trees and native plant seedlings will also be established to support Noongar community activities.
