Urban Bushland and Wetlands

Environment House has been involved in conservation of our natural heritage since our inception. At a local level, we are currently involved with a number of Friends Groups along the Maylands and Bayswater sections of the Swan River. Maylands Samphires Group, Baigup Wetland Group and the Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary Group. If you would like to volunteer with a local group come and see us. Or we would encourage you to visit the Urban Bushland Council website to find a group near you.

The Friends of Maylands Samphires are helping to regenerate an area of samphires and saltbushes alongside the beautiful Swan River at Clarkson Reserve, Maylands. These tough salt tolerant plants help filter out pollutants and nutrients and provide a wonderful habitat for all kinds of birds.

No Houses in Wetlands is a group formed in July 2016 to try and halt the destruction of the Carter's Wetland in Bayswater. If you would like to know more about this campaign visit the facebook page or watch the short video about the campaign https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Knh3u--860

We will keep you posted as to how this campaign ends.
