2016 Myara Brook Planting

Report by Landcare SJ Officer Kristy Gregory

Green Army helping at Myara Brook Planting

A Green Army team is operating in the Peel-Harvey region and we have been able to use them at some of our sites.

Sedlings at Myara Brook Planting, Keysbrook, Western Australia

We have used them at Coffey Rd, Serpentine – love grass removal; Punrak Rd, Serpentine – wattle removal and planting; Beau Sovereign Dve, Nth Dandalup – weed spraying; and Myara Bk, Keysbrook – planting.

It is the third year of planting here, and there is currently an 80% survival rate, due to the lovely soil and weed control efforts by the local Keysbrook Environment Group. 5000 seedling have been planted, with a further 500 today, and a general tidy-up of the guards ready for more to go in next year.
