Funds for Mt Henry spit work

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

ON­GO­ING reveg­e­ta­tion works at the Mount Henry spit in Sal­ter Point will re­ceive State Gov­ern­ment fund­ing through its River­bank Pro­gram, which funds fore­shore restora­tion projects to im­prove the health of the Swan and Can­ning rivers. The Mount Henry spit restora­tion area in­cludes 900m of fore­shore from the Mount Henry Bridge, north to­wards Clois­ters Re­serve. The City of South Perth will match the Gov­ern­ment’s fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tion and the money will also go to­wards weed con­trol mea­sures, re­nour­ish­ment and con­trol­ling ac­cess to the area. It is hoped the restora­tion works will lead to long-term ero­sion con­trol, species di­ver­sity and pro­vide habi­tat for na­tive fauna.
