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.

Connecting communities with water sensitivity

When: Friday, 21 April 2 - 4 pm 
Where: Banks Reserve, Joel Terrace, Mt Lawley

Bring the kids and come down to chat with local and national experts in water sensitivity. There will be a range of presentations on the Australian Water Outlook and findings from the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities.

We will have displays of water sensitive city landscape designs, practical sessions on how to build a biofilter and activities for the kids including:
 a colouring in competition - Click here to download the poster and bring it on the day or colour in while you enjoy the sunshine!
 how to make ”take home” tube stock with herbs and native plants
 macro-invertebrate sampling and identification – thanks to SERCUL

And for the big kids (adults) - bring your best engineering knowledge for the Team WSUD Engineering challenge. Can you demonstrate WSUD principles and build a solution to our problem in only 15 mins?
Who knows more about managing water quantity and quality in a miniature catchment? Only $25 per team of 2 to 4 people.
