Mowen Pit Rehabilitation
Cape Life has been working with the Shire of Nannup to rehabilitate seven gravel pits that were used in the upgrading of a 32 km stretch of Mowen road in 2014.
72 kg of provenance seed was collected from 42 different species by Cape Life staff from October 2015 to April 2016. A total of 63 kg of seed was seeded across the sites incorporating a mix of species from each strata of vegetation present in adjacent bushland.
Planting was conducted in winter of 2016, with a total of 25,500 Eucalyptus seedlings installed to complement the direst seeding. Cape Life has established a monitoring program to track the progress of rehabilitation towards completion standards.
