Protecting Bushland & Foreshore Biodiversity in Melville

7 May 2018

The City of Melville manages an 18km foreshore area that is defined by a narrow chain of reserves and natural vegetation. There are also some beautiful bushland reserves away from the river that provide wonderful opportunities to spot wildflowers and enjoy a touch of serenity within the suburbs.

Join the volunteers at Conservation Volunteers Australia to assist in removing invasive weed species that threaten the biological diversity, particularly the wildflowers, at various parks and foreshore locations. Plantings will also be undertaken to restore native vegetation in these areas.
