Cotton Bush (Gomphocarpus fruticosus) is a widely recognised as an environmental weed. Under PHCC’s National Landcare Program funded Wetlands & People project, support has been provided for weed control within our beautiful Peel-Yalgorup Ramsar listed wetland.
Initial works have just been completed within Kooljerrenup Nature Reserve in the area south of Herron Point Road to the lower Harvey River and estuary mouth. Careful attention has been paid to mapping the areas treated so that follow-up work can be completed over the coming years to ensure that the initial investment is not wasted.
