Support to Friends of Reserves
Nature Conservation continues to support Friends of Reserves Groups through funding from the Shire of Augusta Margaret River’s Environmental Management Fund.
Staff are working with 5 established groups caring for the A Class Reserve, Barrett Street Reserve, Riverslea Foreshore (including parts of Darch Brook), Gracetown Foreshore and a section of the Wadandi Track in Cowaramup.
Recent working bees have focused on strategic plantings undertaken in:
– Barrett St Reserve – regenerating illegally created mountain bike trails.
– A Class Reserve – regenerating Margaret River foreshore representing prime Western Ringtail Habitat and until recently heavily infested with Sweet Pittosporum.
– Cowaramup Brook – supporting degraded riparian vegetation on the edge of the National Park.
– Wadandi Trail – improving degraded patches in otherwise very good condition vegetation.
