Friends of Inglewood Triangle
The bushland in the Triangle is an example of an intact Banksia Woodland community and is situated on the Bassendean landform. It provides a window into the past showing the natural bushland that was once widespread in the area. The nine tree species present in the Triangle are common to the Perth region and provide a wonderful outdoor classroom for all. With the Banksias there are Balgas (grass trees), orchids, an extensive ground cover of rushes and sedges, plus reptiles and birds.
The bushland at Inglewood Triangle is special because it is in good condition considering it is located within an established urban area. It also forms part of an ecological corridor with Mount Lawley Golf Course, Terry Tyzack Aquatic Centre, Macauley Park, Hamer Park and Yokine Reserve. However, there are a range of impacts threatening the biodiversity of the Triangle including Phytophthora Dieback, grassy and invasive weeds, unleashed dogs, cats, foxes, bushfires, feral bees, declining ground water and climate change.
The Friends of Inglewood Triangle
Friends of Inglewood Triangle is a group of people from the local community who maintain and enhance the local biodiversity within the Triangle. The Friends Group comes together for weeding days, revegetation and watering, Clean Up Australia Day, public walks and have links with Perth College and the Mt Lawley Golf Club.
We have focused our efforts on hand weeding the sections of this bushland which are in the best condition. Other more weedy degraded areas have been targeted to varying degrees depending on the availability of volunteers. We are always looking for volunteers who would like to join our group and participate in our bushland conservation activities while learning more about our local environment.
We obtained our first grant funding back in 2012 and it provided the interpretive signs that can be found in the bushland. More recently we have obtained grant funding to support Phytophthora Dieback management; to undertake a series of Spring Walks; to provide training workshops for members; to remove invasive weeds and restore biodiversity in Section D.
- Managing threats: (i) Managing Phytophthora Dieback and (ii) managing grassy & invasive weeds especially veldt, fumaria and black flag
- Targeted revegetation and recovery in Section D – the most degraded part of the site
- A strong community engagement program through collaboration with Perth College, with Mt lawley Golf Club and broader community engagement in a series of Spring Walks
- Extending our conservation influence to other bushlands in proximity to Inglewood Triangle
