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.

#didyouknow there are 20-25 dolphins living in the Swan and Canning rivers?

Dolphin Watch volunteers and scientists from Murdoch and Curtin Universities have been studying them for quite some time.

Come and join us for an informative evening and learn all about the dolphins. There are short videos, prizes to be won and we will show you how you can help keep the rivers healthy for them.

This event is also an opportunity for anyone (16yrs and over) to become a Dolphin Watch volunteer.

A walk and talk with Una Bell at the beautifully restored Throssell Reserve. We will be discussing the transformational journey of the reserve from what was known by locals as the 'dump' to what it is now a stunning area with a wonderful array of wildflowers. Throssell Reserve features a surfacing granite outcrop and local plants such as Yellow Starflower, Stylidiums, Verticordia and native grasses.

The beauty of the reserve as it is today is a result of the work completed by a dedicated ‘Friends of’ group and the Shire of
Mundaring.

Morning tea will be provided.
