Forrestdale Lake is one of only three listed RAMSAR sites in the Perth Metro Area which supports a range of international migratory birds from the America’s and Siberia. The lake also holds two threatened ecological communities – Banksia Woodlands of the Swan Coastal Plain and Clay Pans of the Swan Coastal Plain, of which, a critically endangered native bee Neopasiphae simplicior inhabits.  The native vegetation surrounding the lake also provides a critical food source for the endangered Carnaby’s Cockatoo and vulnerable Forrest Red Tail Black Cockatoo.

Decades of degradation from encroaching housing developments and climate change has led to a rapid decline in the lakes water level and deteriaration of surrounding native vegetation. We need your help to restore this important wetland through weeding, revegatation and nestbox installation! Join us in 2020 at this beautiful wetland by booking onto one of the availlable dates below.
