Managing Our Reserves

Managing our Reserves

The Shire’s priority environmental reserves are managed by of team of environmental staff, together with friends groups whereby adaptive management techniques are applied on-ground to control weeds, dieback and erosion. Revegetation and bushland regeneration also forms a part of reserve management.

Bushland Reserves

The Shire of Kalamunda has many bushland reserves some of these reserves are under the management of the Shire, whilst large tracts of bushland are managed by Department of Environment and Conservation, Water Corporation and The Conservation Commission of WA. There is also a lot of bushland on private property.

The Shire of Kalamunda takes a proactive role in managing areas of local endemic bushland within the district and has previously developed numerous Management Plans to provide a structured approach to the protection and enhancement of the natural values on selected reserves.
