Point Roe is a salt marsh. These types of salt marshes work day and night in so many way to keep our river healthy and us healthy!

 

Unfortunately Point Roe is  a degraded salt marsh and needs our continued help. We now know the importance of healthy vegetation along our waterways. You may have noticed a salt marsh areas along the Swan River has already been fenced for great benefit to the River & us.

 

Let’s give the Roe Point salt marsh a helping hand so it will bring back the birds and bring back the tough salt tolerant sedges. A healthier Roe Point salt marsh will contribute to restoring the health of the Swan River and keep the river fish and dolphins happy.

 

Did you know that most of the birds that use our beaches make their nest on the ground and they are very well disguised? For this and other reason access to salt marshes should be managed and restricted.

 

If you would like to read more " The Ramsar Convention on Wetlands" had their International conference in Australia in 2018 with a message for an urgent need to protect and restore our saltmarshes.


Tools, gloves and morning tea provided! Bring a water bottle! Wear protective old clothes suited to bush work and the weather! Forecast 30 degrees!

Friends of Mosman Park Bushland will have a stall at the local community fair rather than a bushland busy bee at the end of March.

If you can help give out our brochures and attend our stand to encourage the public to become involved in caring for the bushland please let me know. Or just come along and get to know fellow bush guardians without gloves and saws in hand!

We will have:
  • seeds from local plants that are easy to grow
  • raw Mosman Park backyard honey for sale,
  • a bunch of fountain grass weed for public awareness and 
  • brochures for the May native plant subsidy scheme 

 Christchurch Grammar students putting themselves in the picture! Meticulously picking fountain grass seed heads from a heavy weed infestation at Monument Hill. The seeds last for at least 10 years in the soil! Now that is a lot of weeding!!!

Bushland Busy Bee Sunday 26th February Roe Point, Mosman Park

 

Please join us from 9am to 11.30am by the Swan River at Roe Point to maintain this small tidal marshland.


We have had great success here creating a buffer from invasive buffalo lawn so that the native celery herb can flourish with a number of other plants that can tolerate the brackish water at high tide!

It’s planned to be 36 degrees so if we get our work done before it gets to this temperature would be good! We do have shade to work in!

Tools, gloves and morning tea provided! Bring a water bottle and wear comfy old clothes suited to bush work and the weather! Hat and sunscreen!

 

Bus 107 from Perth or Fremantle, stop Beagle street, near Owston st.
