Natural Area Management

The City of Nedlands manages six natural areas consisting of coastal, inland and riverine environments and is involved in:

  • Developing and implementing natural area management plans;
  • Coordinating environmental weed control and revegetation programs;
  • Securing and managing grant funding;
  • Liaising and providing support for natural area Friends Groups;
  • Coordinating public awareness programs and regional environmental projects;
  • Supervising and managing work teams, contractors and volunteers; and
  • Developing and managing fire plans.

The City, in conjunction with natural area Friends Groups, work to manage natural areas in the City for their long term protection, conservation and restoration in accordance with endorsed Management Plan Actions.

Greenways

A greenway is a habitat corridor of protected open space that supports and enhances the natural environment by connecting and linking bushlands, parklands and cultural and historic sites together in the urban environment.

The establishment of greenways:

  • Maintains and protects biodiversity within the City;
  • Provides habitat for local fauna;
  • Facilitates the movement of fauna (especially birds) between areas of remnant bushland; and
  • Increases the City's capacity to absorb greenhouse gas emissions and reduce water consumption.

On a regional level, establishing greenways forms a key component of the Western Suburbs Greening Plan, with the overall objective of creating an interconnected series of natural habitat corridors through the Western Suburbs.
