Two biodiversity projects in the Warren-Blackwood region have received Federal grants with a total of almost $60,000 towards improving the environment.

The Warren Catchments Council received $50,000 and the Blackwood Environment Society received $8580 through the National Landcare Program Small Environmental Grants.

O’Connor MHR Rick Wilson was in Manjimup and Bridgetown on July 17 to announce the funding to the groups.

The Warren Catchments Council will use its funding to research and control pest plants and animals in the Warren region.

The Blackwood Environment Society will use its funding to restore native vegetation along a section of the Quagamirup Brook.
