Environmental Projects

Collie River Bank Stabilisation

The Shire of Dardanup is currently undertaking works to protect areas of the Collie River foreshore and remnant vegetation. In cooperation with the South West Catchment Council the Shire will be installing baffle boards along a 100m section of the Collie River adjacent to the Eaton Bowling Club.

The boards will act to reduce wave impact on the fragile riverbank and prevent or reduce the erosion of soil. The boards will be installed at or below the highest tide mark. Traditional Owners and officers form the LCC, and Department of Water are also involved in the project.

Environmental Offset Program

The Shire is currently working on a 3.5 hectare site on Banksia Road, Dardanup. The site holds some excellent stands of remnant vegetation critical for the Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo. The revegetation works include weed and pest control, direct seeding with up to 25 species, planting of seedlings and the retention of habitat for fauna.
