Management of wetlands

The City manages Yellagonga Regional Park in partnership with the City of Wanneroo and Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions. Two key management plans exist to ensure the park’s environmental, cultural and heritage values are protected. These include the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions’ Yellagonga Regional Park Management Plan 2003-2013 and the City of Joondalup and City of Wanneroo Yellagonga Integrated Catchment Management Plan 2015-2019.

The Yellagonga Integrated Catchment Management Plan 2015-2019 is a joint project of the Cities of Joondalup and Wanneroo to provide a holistic and long term strategic framework to improve catchment health and protect the diverse values of the Yellagonga Regional Park.

The City also manages a number of artificial wetlands through activities such as weed removal, planting of fringing vegetation and installation of aerators to improve water quality.
