What's on

The River Guardians program delivers a great range of fun and educational events to the community each year. Keep up to date with what’s happening around the Swan Canning Riverpark here.

Come and help keep the Swan River clean on Wednesday morning as part of the 2021 City of Perth Festival of Sail.

The last 3-years' beach clean-ups have seen the collection of over 60 bags of full rubbish from the Perth foreshore.

Volunteers, competitors, staff, sponsors and stakeholders have all joined forces to create a positive impact on the environmental assets being utilised during the week-long festival.

Please come down, lend a hand and help keep our rivers clean! :)

Join SERCUL at this series of planting days aimed at restoring the western lake bed of Blue Gum Lake! We will be meeting on the grassed area near the corner of Canning Ave and Rogerson Road, Brentwood.

This site dries each year and was choked with dense lawn grasses and other weeds. SERCUL has cleared the weeds and are now undertaking a MASSIVE restoration project whilst the lake bed is dry, aiming to replace the grasses with native sedges and wetlands plants before the winter rains flood the area again.

You can arrive and leave whenever you want as long as you check in with the supervisor first. No prior experience or skill level is required and all ability levels can be accommodated, though children under 16 require adult supervision.

Please bring your own gloves and wear closed shoes, a hat, and ideally long pants. Bring lunch and LOTS of water (more than you think you'll need!).

Follow any up to date restrictions or guidelines regarding COVID and stay home if you are feeling unwell. Avoid sharing tools and equipment. We will provide hand sanitiser and clean tools.

Individual volunteers need not RSVP but please let us know in advance if you have a large group so we can have extra gear ready. Any further questions can be directed to Jayson (jaysonsekhon@sercul.org.au 0435 554 844)

These planting events are part of the Booragoon and Blue Gum Lakes Restoration Project funded by State NRM

Help us keep the Swan Canning Riverpark litter free.

Get involved in our annual Clean our Rivers week event. All you need is a few minutes...or up to one hour...it's up to you!

Just head down to your favourite riverside location between Monday 1st to Sunday 7th February as part of the one-hour exercise period you're allowed during this COVID lockdown (remember that wearing a mask is mandatory until 6pm on Friday 5 February), pick up some rubbish and put it in the bin. Whether you pick up a few bits while on your morning/evening walk or jog, while you walk the dog, or even at a spot where you usually play some sports, or at your local park.

If you're super organised, bring a plastic bag with you and aim to fill it up. Before you throw it in the bin, take a selfie of you and the rubbish you've collected and post it to Facebook or Instagram - make sure you share it with us @RiverGuardians and use the #cleanourrivers :)

Unfortunately, due to the COVID lockdown in Perth, we've had to cancel our planned clean up event at Elizabeth Quay on Wednesday 3rd of February.
