Saturday, 30 April 2022: Guided Nature Walk, commencing 8 am

There are a series of guided nature walks each month at Landsdale, Koondoola, Lake Gwelup and Star Swamp reserves

Guided walks in Trigg Bushland are held only when there is a fifth Saturday in the month, making them quite special.

Dates for 2022 are:

  • 30 April 2022
  • 30 July 2022
  • 29 October 2022
  • 31 December 2022

The walks commence at 8:00 am from the south side of St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School (free parking available off Elliott Road).  See the map below and look for the banner!

Walks usually last two hours, or more, but, of course, you can leave at any time.  The walk is at a gentle pace on established paths. Bring your hat and water bottle as well as your camera and binoculars. Covered shoes and long pants are recommended.

Children are welcome.  It is a good learning opportunity for all of us.

Of course, monitoring data becomes more meaningful when examined over a much longer period of time.
