We have received a large government grant to improve and connect areas of remnant bushland by planting lush vegetation corridors to form beautiful shaded walk and cycle paths for the wellbeing of people, wildlife and the environment.
This is an ambitious project and we need lots of volunteers to help us to help us restore and enhance reserves in Mandurah by planting, mulching and watering up to 1,000 trees in honour of the Queen’s Jubilee.
The trees will increase habitat and food for the survival of native flora and fauna, in particular endangered species such as the Carnaby’s black cockatoo.
The increased canopy cover will improve biodiversity and provide natural shade for a Jubilee commemorative sanctuary in our urban environment.
Community involvement in the planting and the ongoing maintenance will increase community ownership and utilisation of these reserves in the future.
