Since 2011 the JBCA has been actively involved in the rehabilitation of the Foreshore Reserve which stretches approx. 2.1km from Viveash Road to Toodyay Road within Jane Brook
The JBCA has partnered with HBF and National Lifestyle Villages and in 2013 received a $20,000 grant from the City of Swan and $50,000 from the State NRM to continue our work during 2013/14. To date the JBCA has facilitated the planting of 87,870 seedlings and has worked towards exotic weed reduction and eradication
The Section 95 Wooroloo Prison crew is currently assisting with the removal of all exotic tree species from the Foreshore Reserve such as Olives, Fig, Mulberry and Brazilian Ash trees.
The plan for 2017-2021 is to break the Reserve up into manageable sections of approx. 400 metres in length, both sides of the Brook. Each year we will prepare the area by weed spaying and control and mass plant shrubs and understorey species before we move to the next section.
It is envisaged that we will plant between 2,500 and 3,000 seedlings in each section. Our aim is to restore the Jane Brook Foreshore Reserve to its former glory before clearing and farming in the area impacted negatively on the waterway and Reserve.
