The foreshore areas of the City of South Perth are adjacent to the Swan and Canning River and are important ecological links for the movement of fauna from inland reserves to and from the river system. It contains the most extensive wetlands in the lower reaches of the Swan and Canning Rivers, with foreshore vegetation that is not found anywhere else along these rivers. The area provides habitat for over 74 species of land and water birds, including 14 significant bird species, 12 reptiles and 6 amphibian species.

Join our volunteers to assist in weed management activities to improve native vegetation, as well as planting new vegetation to stabilise the river banks and protect areas from erosion. We will be returning to each of these sites over the next three years, allowing our volunteer teams to see the impact and transformation of their efforts.
