Funds flow for con­ser­va­tion ef­forts

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Canning River -

THE Mt Henry Con­ser­va­tion Group has re­ceived $5500 as part of a $35,000 State Gov­ern­ment plan to pre­vent con­tam­i­nants and harm­ful nu­tri­ents en­ter­ing the Swan River catch­ment.

En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter Al­bert Ja­cob said it was one of 25 groups to re­ceive fund­ing this year, which will fo­cus on such is­sues as reveg­e­tat­ing pri­or­ity wa­ter­ways, bush­land restora­tion, dieback man­age­ment, weed con­trol and man­age­ment of feral pest species.

Group co-or­di­na­tor Mavis An­drews said the fund­ing would help con­tinue the group’s vi­tal con­ser­va­tion work on the 11.9 hectare Mt Henry Penin­sula area, par­tic­u­larly along the Can­ning River.

To help with the group’s con­ser­va­tion work, call 0407 447 669 or email Mavis.An­drews@aquinas.
