Our catchment is rich in natural assets such as King river, Kalgan river, Porongurup national park, the Stirling ranges as well as 31 nature reserves and 38 heritage sites. It’s particularly known for its biodiversity, located in an internationally recognised biodiversity hotspot. Unfortunately, many of our endemic plants are at risk due to invasive weeds dominating the landscape.
Spring is a great burst of colour which can be used to identify many different type of flowering plants both native and weeds. While your out in the bush or on your property keep an eye out for the invaders and try to control them before they go to seed.
If you need help with this Oyster Harbour Catchment Group has made a weed booklet to help, if you would like one make sure you become a member.
