SWCC’s South West Community Groundworks Program offers grants between $5,000 and $25,000 to the Landcare community to address NLP priorities through on-ground projects and related activities. This includes projects that protect biodiversity and sites of ecological value, support sustainable management of agriculture and aquaculture, increase the skills and knowledge of the local community in NRM and other priority activities identified within local and regional NRM plans and strategies.
Grants are targeted at local community groups and individuals that can successfully deliver NRM projects. Applications can be submitted by individual farmers and land managers, farmer / production groups, industry groups, Aboriginal groups, ‘friends of’ groups, Landcare and NRM organisations or other community groups within the South West NRM region.

Weed ALERT - Bridal Creeper
Due to the early rains this environmental weed has flourished and large infestations have been reported appearing round the Dumbleyung Townsite bush areas and roads leading into town.
It has also been reported in several locations around the Kukerin Townsite.
A spray program covering some of the Shire Roadsides in the western part of the shire will be carried out by a Contractor in July as part of a State NRM Project being coordinated through the Katanning Landcare Office.
As this weed has the potential to invade natural bush areas and smother native plants it is essential to control it before it has the capacity to expand over a large area. Reported sites can be earmarked to be sprayed when funds become available.
Please report bridal creeper infestation sites to the Landcare Office so they can be recorded on a data base and sprayed. Your help in recording this weed will be appreciated. Thank You. Phone 9863 4225.
