    Control of geophyte, woody and herbaceous weeds in the catchment area

    Between the Heritage Trail and Park Road Scenic Drive, Friends of John Forrest National Park surveyed and located 103 Watsonia sites which were GPS recorded &/or ribbon-tagged. They then assisted the Contractor, funded by the Natural Resource Management Community Action Grant, to find and herbicide treat the sites. 18 woody weeds in this area were also GPS recorded and most have been felled or hand pulled.
    In the process, five new populations of Declared Rare Flora - Diplolaena andrewsii have been found in this area and reported to Flora Conservation, Department of Parks and Wildlife Mundaring. 

    Considerable follow-up weed control work has been undertaken by the Friends Group in the eastern Jane Brook catchment area and the Priest Creek catchment area in the South West Sector to eliminate remnant weeds and avoid reinfestation.

    Along Clutterbuck Creek and Jane Brook about 100 woody weeds have been felled or herbicide treated.
