The City of Canning assists in the management of five Bush Forever sites.
Bush Forever is the strategic plan for the conservation of bushland on the Swan Coastal Plain. It is a world-class plan in Australia’s only global biodiversity hotspot.
By conserving our biological diversity, we are protecting remnant vegetation and ensuring an important habitat for wildlife.
Within the City of Canning, Bush Forever sites include:
- Canning River Regional Park
- McDowell Street Bush Plan
- Queens Park Regional Open Space
- Yagan Wetland Reserve
- parts of Jandakot Regional Park.
The plan protects and manages significant bushland areas by ensuring they are considered in land-use planning and decision-making.
