Envite Environment has been working with schools on important local environmental projects. They improve the health of the Wilsons River through removing weeds and planting local natives.
Educators have been holding school based workshops about the importance of this work. Landcare groups have also been hosting training days to allow people to gain practical experience.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said they want to continue this work and remove more weeds.
“It was great to join members of Envite Environment to announce $20,000 to support this important project,” Mr Hogan said.
“Through this funding, they can continue to reduce the impact of weeds and re-establish native vegetation on riverbanks.”
“This project will build on work completed by Wilson’s River Landcare, Boatharbour Landcare and local schools along the river.”
“Envite will be focussing on areas that have the best regeneration potential. It will avoid areas prone to erosion to stop sedimentation in the river.”
