To inform the public and key decision-makers of what is happening in the forests of Jarrahdale and the imminent risk of losing important biodiversity, cultural and heritage values of the Northern Jarrah Forest, and to protect Northern Jarrah Forrest near Jarrahdale for future generations.
In the past, there has been extensive logging and mining in the Jarrahdale area. The intention of JFP is to preserve a section of easily accessible forest in this high rainfall location so that it may recover from the effects of past activities, to remain as a restored forest as a legacy for all people.
