NACC – Rehabilitating the North Guilderton dunes 2017-18
NACC – CCGP18-03
This project will continue the remediation of the north dunes at Guilderton. The 22ha area of fragile dunes was fenced off from vehicles in 2014 and a
walk trail formalised. Remediation works started on the degraded tracks in 2015 with a successful community planting and weed pull event in June 2015
partnering the Guilderton Community Association and the 4WD Club of WA funded through the State NRM Program. Subsequent community planting
days were funded through NACC in 2016 and 2017. This collaboration with all groups ensured good volunteer attendance for the planting day. More
planting is needed to fill in the remaining bare degraded tracks. This year the project will extend to the Pyp grass sprayed area at the south end.
This project will build on works done previous to achieve the goal of restoring this area to its natural state.
This project will:
• Revegetate 1.5ha of degraded tracks and Pyp grass sprayed area using 1,500 local provenance native plants suitable for the project;
• Partner the Guilderton Community Association and 4WD Club of WA to organise and run a community planting and weeding event in June 2018.
Project duration: 1st November 2017 to 30th June 2018
