Thank you to the SGIO Community Grant Program

Roleybushcare has just embarked on an exciting new project. Ian Colquhoun, the chair of the Group, said ‘The project is called Local Plants for Local Areas and we have received a $5000 grant from the SGIO Community Grant Program. Nurseries stock very few plant species that are local to Roleystone so we will grow them ourselves. However, it is not going to be easy because many species that are common in our local forest need to be grown from cuttings.’ The SGIO grant was used to purchase a commercial propagation unit designed specifically for cuttings – it has an automatic mist sprayer and a built-in heating pad to encourage root growth. The plants will be used to rehabilitate patches of local bushland that have been severely affected by dieback and weeds.

SALP money has arrived

Thank you to SALP (Swan River Trust and Alcoa Landcare Program) for the $4,500 presented to Roleybushcare at the breakfast held at Fraser's Restaurant in Kings Park. What a lovely morning. We met so many volunteers doing so much for their own small areas. We are looking forward to using this money to rehabilitate remnant bushland in Roleystone.


New brochure is now available - Canning River Interpretive Trail.

This trail is located between Soldiers Road and winds alongside the Canning River ending at Thompson Road. It is a peaceful place in which you will be able to appreciate the tranquil bushland along this part of the river. We hope to encourage you to take time to appreciate the flora, fauna and landscape of this area and to observe remnants of local history. The trail has numbered marker posts which when used with the brochure will prompt you to better observe points of interest. Please continue to expand your knowledge by going to our website where you will find extra information in the Canning River Interpretive Trail webpage.

Brochures can be found at the Roleystone Family Centre and the Roleystone Hardware store.
