Inglewood Triangle - amazing bushland in the heart of suburbia

2014 - a successful year

We look back on 2014 with a sense of achievement.

We now have interpretative signs showing key features of the Triangle.

The Veldt grass has been tamed, and you can walk through the Triangle and not be overwhelmed by nodding heads of grassy weeds.

The City of Stirling planted out hundreds of native plants in our 4th year of revegetation.

Our volunteer numbers really sky-rocketed through our links with Conservation Volunteers Australia. You can see a couple of our keen volunteers in the photo above.

We continued our engagement with local schools.

..and the flowering plants of the Triangle are magnificent.

2014 Wrap

Clean Up Australia Day 2014

Despite a very hot day, another good crowd joined us early on Sunday 2 March for our 4th Clean Up Australia Day event. We cleaned away the litter and followed with a bushwalk for newcomers.

Interpretative Signs 

Our signs were finally installed in late June. They were funded from an environmental grant through the Department of Environment and Conservation (now DPaW) and with design and installation support through the City of Stirling.  These signs highlight some key features of the vegetation of Inglewood Triangle 

Welcome new members

We greatly appreciated the weeding efforts of new members Alison, Graham, Maria and Maddy.   

Volunteer support from Conservation Volunteers Australia 

The support from Conservation Volunteers Australia has been key to the progress we have made in taming the grassy weeds of Inglewood Triangle.  They provided volunteers for three full days and one half day and helped us removed many bags of Veldt grass and Fumaria.  Thank you Katie Haynes from CVA. 

Perth College Kindy 

We continued to work with the kindy class from Perth College, led by their enthusiastic teacher, Suzanne Bushby.  They have adopted Inglewood Triangle and we really enjoyed their company.  Thank you especially to Cath Cooper for leading our engagement.

Success in controlling Veldt grass 

We made major inroads into the Veldt grass during 2014, through selective spraying by City of Stirling staff plus additional hand weeding through volunteers provided by Conservation Volunteers Australia. The sea of swaying heads of Veldt in Section B have gone!

Official Stuff

The office bearers for the Group in 2014 were Cath Cooper (President), Christine Richardson (Treasurer), Christine Allbeury (Secretary) and Mary Gray (committee member). During the year we successfully acquitted our DPaW grant.  
Christine Richardson was Friends of Inglewood Triangle's nominee on the committee of the Urban Bushland Council WA Inc.  

Coffee catch up to discuss 2015

We will be meeting on Friday 30 January at 7:30 am at Coode Street Cafe, corner of Coode St and 3rd Avenue Mt Lawley to talk through plans for 2015.  Please let me know (click here) if you can join us for coffee or breakfast
