It’s been an exercise in team work as a range of organisations have come together to restore a former quarry site in Broome.

The project at the former sand pit quarry on Port Dve is facilitated by the Kimberley Nature Project (KNP) at Environs Kimberley and is funded through a Federal Government 20 Million Trees Grant.

It brings together the Shire of Broome, Environs Kimberley, Mamabulanjin Green Army and Work for the Dole teams, Nyamba Buru Yawuru, North Regional TAFE, SKIPA volunteers, CoAct and Water Corporation WA.

Challenges at the site included weed removal and reintroducing local plant species, with the Shire contributing by removing green waste, providing clean fill, landscaping, providing mulch, growing plants and technical support.

KNP Project Officer, Kylie Weatherall, says about 1000 plants will be established by June 2018.

“The project is off to a great start thanks to collaboration from multiple partners and good planning, bolstered by above-average rainfall and hard work from the Green Army team,” she says.
