What We Do

  • Sustainable Industries
    On ground works to reduce nutrient run off into the Swan/ Avon targeting the Avon sub-catchments, including the Mortlock, Dale, and Middle and Upper Avon.
  • Sustainable Industries
    This project uses a coordinated grassroots approach to threat mitigation of feral vertebrates across the South West of WA. Local communities are supported to undertake control programs at key times of the year in the context of a larger coordinated program.
  • Healthy Environments
    Identify and release the K5 virus on “up to 14” sites in the Wheatbelt Natural Resource management region.
  • Healthy Environments
    Central Avon - By 30 June 2020, the project will establish 40,000 trees (species above 2 metres when mature) and 20,000 species below 2 metres when mature, over at least 141 hectares of land.
  • Operations
    The Noongar Budjar Rangers aims to give members of the aboriginal community opportunities to work on country and learn important skills that provide ongoing employment options.
  • Sustainable Industries
    Our aim with this project is to increase the awareness, understanding and ability of Wheatbelt growers to adopt methods of sustainably managing Australia’s soil.
  • Healthy Environments
    Malleefowl, like many species in the Wheatbelt, used to be found across the region, but loss of habitat and feral predators have reduced their range considerably.
  • Healthy Environments
    As part of the National Landcare Program Wheatbelt NRM has been set the task of urgently acting to protect the threatened species - Matchstick Banksia, Banksia cuneata, also known as the Quairading Banksia.
  • Healthy Environments
    “Where the Wild Things are” is targeting patches of remnant vegetation that are consistent with the conservation advice describing the Eucalypt Woodlands of the WA Wheatbelt.
  • Sustainable Industries
    Using demonstration sites the ‘Maximising Fodder Options in Mixed Farming Systems’ project will showcase how taking a holistic approach to a range of forage and pasture options can change the outcome on livestock production and soil health.
  • Operations
    BioBlitz brings together community members and groups who are interested in learning more about their natural environment, professional and amateur biologists, scientists, ecologists and naturalists. We’d love you to join us.
  • Operations
    This project is helping the Wheatbelt community live more sustainable and energy-efficient lives at home, work and in their communities.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The eConnected Grainbelt Demonstration project uses technology to help landholders make better-informed decisions for farm management. Using feedback from growers to develop better tools is an important part of the project.
  • Sustainable Industries
    This project will deliver Stage 3 of the Living Lakes initiative which involves implementing innovative engineering solutions and developing activation plans to enhance the amenity, use and visitation of two key lakes in regional Western Australia.
  • Operations
    Wheatbelt NRM and the Dumbleyung Landcare Zone co-hosted the 2016 Tarin Rock BioBlitz near Lake Grace from 8th to 9th October 2016.
  • Healthy Environments
    Wheatbelt NRM works with landholders to help them improve their property's bushland health and native species populations through the management of feral pests such as foxes, cats and rabbits.
  • Healthy Environments
    Wheatbelt NRM is collaborating with Enviro-Stories to work with 10 schools in our region, to write a Biodiversity-themed short story focusing on local threatened species and what can be done to save them from extinction.
  • Healthy Environments
    This project will address the poor condition of the catchments of the Mortlock River, Mortlock River East and Mortlock River South, and the Swan/Avon River (into which they flow).
  • Sustainable Industries
    The Wheatbelt Champions project celebrated local farmers for trying new farming practices to increase productivity and sustainability and for encouraging others to follow their example.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The SaltCap project ran from October 2011 to June 2013. It aimed to help farmers choose what to plant and where in challenging saltland environments.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The Creating Connections Project ran between October 2011 and June 2013 in the south-eastern Wheatbelt. This project worked with farmers to help them plan revegetation activities on their farms in the Avon Wheatbelt IBRA region.
  • Seeder from the Air
    Sustainable Industries
    The Farming Landscapes for the Future – Decision Support for Farmers in Agroforestry project ran from October 2011 to June 2013. This project increased access to planning tools that help landholders add agroforestry to farming systems in the Avon NRM region.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The Climate Change project aimed to produce decision-making tools to support Landcare, grower and community groups in planning for climate change in the Wheatbelt.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator (RALF) network is an initiative of the Commonwealth Department of Agriculture and Water Resources funded under the Regional Lands Partnership.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The trials and demonstrations project will help establish high-quality large and small scale demonstration sites across the Avon River Basin.
  • Sheep grazing in biodiverse agricultural system
    Sustainable Industries
    The Biodiverse Agroforestry project ran a 6-month trials program focussed on plantings with both biodiversity and production benefits.
  • Operations
    A systems analysis was used to understand the state of the regional environment, with community and scientific expertise engaged to determine community values that would underpin a resilience assessment.
  • Operations
    This project aims to involve young people in their own projects to help them increase their connection with the environment and natural resource management issues.
  • Operations
    This project works with Aboriginal land managers to trial and demonstrate bush tucker plants as a commercial crop in the Wheatbelt.
  • Operations
    This project is helping Aboriginal people in the Wheatbelt develop skills in NRM and creating opportunities to work on Country.
  • Operations
    This project aims to build the capacity of the Aboriginal community in natural resource management through NRM program delivery, and to build initiatives that contribute to a sustainable regional community.
  • Sustainable Industries
    The On-Farm Soil Monitoring Handbook was developed for farmers as a tool for monitoring soil health. The handbook was adapted from the ‘Monitoring Soil Science’ resource developed by SPICE.
  • Sustainable Industries
    Better management, harvesting and reuse of stormwater can increase resilience and amenity for Wheatbelt communities. By reducing our dependency on drinking water to irrigate town ovals, parks and gardens, we can also decrease management costs.
  • Sustainable Industries
    This project aims to assist farmers with adopting sustainable farming practices that enhance soil health without compromising yield.
