Landowners sought for landcare activities

Shire of Mundaring and Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council (EMRC) are seeking landowners in the Wooroloo Brook Catchment area who may be interested in a new landcare initiative.

The EMRC has recently employed Community Engagement Officer, Danae Warden, to engage with landholders in Wooroloo Brook Catchment who have an interest in the environment and wish to discuss opportunities for participating in landcare activities. 

Mundaring Shire is a member council of the EMRC and works collaboratively on a range of environmental and sustainability initiatives.  

The Wooroloo Brook Catchment covers an area of 36,000ha and includes the suburbs of Wooroloo, Chidlow, Wundowie and Gidgegannup. 

The catchment comprises of 15 sub-catchments including Cooke's Brook, Selleck Brook and Gidgegannup Brook. 

The health of these areas directly affects the Wooroloo Brook and the Swan River. If you own a property in one of these localities, Danae is keen to discuss any environmental concerns you may have in regard to your property or surrounding reserves (such as weeds, erosion, flooding or salinity).

Landholders are also invited to attend a planting day and morning tea organised by the EMRC at Cookes Brook in Chidlow (opposite Lake Leschenaultia).

If you would like to attend the planting day or wish to find out more about the Wooroloo Brook Catchment project, please contact Danae on 0418 928 031 or email
