Yangebup Lake and Little Rush Lake

8 March 2019

We're developing a Master Plan for Yangebup Lake and Little Rush Lake Reserves so we can protect the environment and still encourage public use.

If you've visited these lakes and have some ideas about what they mean to you or how we can achieve that balance, please let us know by 8 March 2019.

Background

Each reserve is managed primarily for conservation and each has minimal infrastructure with only dual use paths, fencing and some small playgrounds.

From an environmental sense, the two wetlands comprise open water, riparian and upland endemic vegetation ranging in condition from excellent to completely degraded. We know they will come under increased pressure from visitors as the local population increases.

Current stage

So the City is now developing a plan that will see each reserve retain its conservation status and unique history but also provide some passive recreation opportunities for the local community. These need to be sustainable in the long term and consistent with the Beeliar Regional Park Management Plan. Current activities include:

  • Walking, jogging and cycling
  • Dog walking
  • Bird watching
  • Wildlife conservation and education
  • Nutrient stripping basin trials

Current threats or management issues include:

  • Illegal trail (motor) bike riding; and
  • Weed invasion
  • Rubbish dumping
  • Uncontrolled fire
  • Feral animals
  • Excess nutrients in the water
  • Nuisance midge

Your assistance in completing the following survey will help guide the future of these lakes and reserves.
