Fund­ing lift for Flats

Canning Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Fern­dale Flats Restora­tion Project has re­ceived a $36,276 boost from the State Govern­ment.

Cov­er­ing an area of six hectares in the Can­ning River Re­gional Park, the project in­volves weed con­trol, veg­e­ta­tion map­ping and monitoring, seed con­trol and reveg­e­ta­tion.

The restora­tion of Fern­dale Flats near Fern­dale Cres­cent and Der­ri­ton Street aims to pre­serve the lo­cal area for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions to en­joy, and is jointly funded by the State Govern­ment, City of Can­ning and SERCUL.

Can­ning­ton MLA Bill John­ston said the Can­ning River Re­gional Park was a valu­able part of the com­mu­nity.

“We’re so lucky to have the Can­ning River Re­gional Park in our com­mu­nity,’’ he said.

“The Mcgowan Govern­ment is com­mit­ted to pro­tect­ing our rivers; this project was just one of many funded un­der the River­care Pro­gram.”

Can­ning Mayor Paul Ng said the City was thrilled to be sup­port­ing this ini­tia­tive.

“Our com­mu­nity has told us they want well­man­aged nat­u­ral areas, which sup­port recre­ation and bio­di­ver­sity, and the Fern­dale Flats project cer­tainly achieves these ob­jec­tives,’’ he said.
