Status: closed

Closing Date: 24 October 2018

Amount: Maximum $15,000 (will reserve the right to consider larger projects)

Organisation: PHCC

We aim to improve the health and biodiversity of the Serpentine River through collaboration with individuals (private landholders) and community groups by engaging in the following on-ground activities:

Fencing - Protect and conserve existing areas of riparian and bushland vegetation to maintain resilience in the landscape
Biosecurity - Feral animals, weeds and diseases will be removed to reduce impact and spread with the aim to improve ecological function
Revegetation - Reconnect areas of bushland, riparian zones and/or patches of remnant vegetation to create landscape scale ecological corridors
Bank Stabilisation - Decrease erosion and/or improve water condition
Enhance Fish Habitat - Improve habitat, connectivity, breeding and food resources for fish species

All activities MUST be undertaken within the Serpentine River Sub-Catchment (see map here) and completed by November 2019.

As conditions apply to these grants, it is strongly recommended that before submitting an application you discuss your proposal in detail with PHCC’s Jo Garvey on 6369 8800 or email

Funding Opportunities have been made available to the community through the Alcoa Foundations Three Rivers One Estuary Initiative
