Council’s conservation officers will be working alongside rangers from the Bunurong Land Council to protect Kingston’s valuable native flora and fauna from invasive weed incursions.

In collaboration with our project partners, the Peri-Urban Weed Management Program will target weeds across 60 hectares of bushland and foreshore reserves, with sites including Mordialloc Creek, Rowan Woodland, Elder Street South and the Bonbeach and Carrum foreshore.

These works will assist in protecting and enhancing some of Kingston’s most significant natural areas.

Project partners include:

  • Kingston City Council (lead agency)
  • Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation (primary project partner)
  • Seeds Bushland Management
  • Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action
  • Melbourne Water
  • Kingston Environmental Friends Network.

The Peri-Urban Weed Management Program is a multi-year project funded through the Victorian Government’s Peri-Urban Weed Management Partnerships with co-contributions from Kingston City Council and is currently scheduled to run until 2025.
