14065: Weed control and dieback treatment: Bungendore Park and adjacent land
Bungendore Park is a relatively large 498ha reserve, in mostly excellent condition, which forms an important green peri-urban backdrop to the City of Armadale. Two declared rare orchids and numerous priority flora can be found in the park which contains six major habitat types over the Darling Scarp geology.
The project will implement priorities in the Bungendore Park Dieback Management Plan 2009-2019 including the treatment of known Phytophthora Dieback fronts. Dieback has infected approximately 281 hectares of the park. This project aims to minimise the further spread of dieback by treating areas of Dieback-free vegetation that are at high risk of infection. Weeds (including WONS) also threaten the health of the parks vegetation. This project will focus on three WONS and woody weeds in adjacent DPaW-managed land to reduce encroachment of weeds into the park.
On completion, an information pamphlet will be mailed to park neighbours informing them of the environmental enhancements covered by this project.
