Alcoa of Australia, Greening Australia and the Harvey River Restoration Taskforce have jointly been named the winners of the ‘Bush, Land and Waterways’ category at the 2009 Western Australian Environment Awards.

The Awards, run by the Department of Environment and Conservation, recognise and acknowledge environmental excellence in WA. The ‘Bush, Land and Waterways’ award is presented to an individual, group or organisation for outstanding achievement in restoring or rehabilitating degraded or contaminated land, and/ or in the conservation of our catchments and waterways.

The trio was awarded for its ‘Nell’s Block’ project, five kilometres from the WA South-West town of Yarloop and close to Alcoa’s Wagerup and Willowdale operations. ‘Nell’s Block’ is a 16 hectare former pasture paddock, owned by Alcoa. Read more.
