Before and Afters

Healthy Environments

Back in 2011 as part of the Wheatbelt NRM Community Small grants the York District High School helped to revegetate an area of Mt Brown in the York townsite.

This little patch of the Reserve has been left to its devices over the last 7 years and the outcome is impressive.

Not only has a large percentage of the revegetation survived but natural recruitment of local species such as the Jam trees has produced a thicket where there was once bare ground.

If you pick the right species and the site preparation is done right then revegetation in the Wheatbelt can be highly successful.
