Funding lift for Flats
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.
