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.

What's happening: Last year volunteers participated in a planting day at the Brentwood Living Stream project and the site is looking amazing! We have another opportunity to get some more plants in at this site - apologies for the short notice.

How do I get there: The Leach Highway train station is a 5 minute walk from the site. There is also parking avaible on the verge of the vacant blocks opposite the meeting point on Moonlight Cove.

Please bring: Suitable clothing (wet weather gear, hat) and wear enclosed shoes and your own gloves (if you have them).
Don't forget a bottle of water!

Please note: There are no toilet facilities on site and parking is on the verge on Moonlight Cove.

Let us know if you can come by emailing us at community@dbca.wa.gov.au
