THE Swan Estuary Reserves Action Group (SERAG) has been given an injection of close to $40,000 to continue conservation work along the Attadale foreshore.
The group, which will have access to $38,280 over three years, secured the funding as part of the State Government’s Community Rivercare Program.
The program helps deliver projects aiding foreshore restoration, native waterbird conservation and native fish habitat protection along the Swan and Canning rivers.
A SERAG spokeswoman said the local group would focus on eradicating invasive weeds and support areas that have been impacted by erosion or vandalism.
“If everything goes to plan the project will be steadily delivered over a three-year time-frame,” she said.
Bicton MLA Lisa O’Malley encouraged other local groups to apply for funding when submissions for round two of the program open later this year.
