What is the Seedlings for Landcare Program?

The Seedlings for Landcare Program provides approximately 24,000 free native seedlings for planting on rural-zoned private properties, school grounds and bushland reserves in the Shire of Mundaring.

The aim of the program is to restore local bushland, creeklines and wildlife corridors to improve habitat for native animals.

Who can receive seedlings?

  • Mundaring residents and ratepayers who own or live on a rural-zoned property greater than 4000sqm;
  • Schools, registered Friends Groups and Catchment Groups undertaking revegetation projects on school grounds or in local bushland reserves.

If you are not sure if your property is zoned rural, select the Town Planning page to search for your address on the Shire’s GeoHub Maps system.

How to use GeoHub Maps?

  • Click the GeoHub Maps link, then Town Planning tab
  • Type in your property address in the search bar
  • Select your address from the search result list
  • Select the property in the map to view zoning details.

Alternatively contact the Shire and ask for assistance to check your zoning.  

Please note: Residential zoned properties are not eligible to receive seedlings.

Eligible activities

  • Revegetation of wetlands and creeklines to improve wildlife habitat, water quality and reduce erosion;
  • Revegetation of degraded land to create wildlife corridors linking patches of remnant bushland;
  • Revegetation of bushland to improve wildlife habitat and reduce weed invasion and erosion.

Priority will be given to Expressions of Interest that improve the health of rural creeklines.

How many seedlings can I receive?

  • Residents on rural zoned properties between 4000sqm and 2ha can receive up to 50 seedlings
  • Residents on rural zoned properties greater than 2ha can receive up to 100 seedlings
  • Schools, registered Friends Groups and Catchment Groups can receive up to 200 seedlings.
