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 you'll get to hear from the dolphin experts!

We will show you how you can help keep the rivers healthy for them.

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

Date: Wednesday 21 June 2017
Time: 6 -8.30pm
