The $5,000 SITA community grant will assist the Serpentine-Jarrahdale Landcare group in Western Australia to coordinate six community groups and schools in looking after five local natural areas.
One of the nominated sites has been looked after by a local group and school for more than 15 years, and this project will ensure that revegetation activities can continue in the 2014 season. The other four sites will involve supporting new ‘Friends-of’ groups in the rehabilitation of a natural area.
Rehabilitation will involve site weed control, ground preparation and planting of local native seedlings. As well as environmental outcomes, the project will also provide environmental education to around 75 adults and children involved with the groups, and an opportunity to gain hands on practical experience in natural resource management activities.
