Our local community conservation group, Roleybushcare, has been granted $6000 by the Swan Alcoa Landcare Program. Ian Colquhoun, the chair of the group, said 'this is a great boost to our team. It will enable us to revegetate 3 local bushland reserves that have been hit by dieback and weed invasion'.

The grant will also be used to employ professionals to eradicate the weed, cotton bush, from sections of land along the Canning River. Ian added 'these bushland reserves in Roleystone are highly prized by residents and especially the neighbours of the reserves. We hope to get the neighbours more involved in the revegetation and dieback treatment programs'.

Thanks go to Alcoa and the Swan River Trust for this grant.
