    309 Bickley Rd, Kenwick WA 6107, Australia

    The Friends of the Alison Baird Reserve, the Friends of the Brixton St Wetlands & the South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare (SERCUL) invite you to visit the ‘creme de la creme’ flora reserve of the famed Greater Brixton St Wetlands. Do your bit to help us control weeds, bring a picnic afternoon tea to share, and enjoy a relaxing guided flora walk afterwards! The reserve has been owned and cared for, over the course of many decades, by the University of Western Australia. With over 380 native flora species in this 32ha reserve, many generations of UWA Botany students have fallen in love with the flora of the SW WA biodivierity hotspot here. The reserve has always inspired many UWA and international research projects and is more important than ever as a research site. However weeds and other threats are encroaching on the excellent condition Banksia Woodland and Claypans Threatened Ecological Communites in this reserve.

    Participant numbers will be limited (and no pets please) as conservation is our top priority at this Free Event.

    At: Lesser Hall, Mills Park Brixton Street

    DESCRIPTION

    The Greater Brixton Street Wetlands hosts more carnivorous plant species than the whole of Europe and the highest floral diversity in the Perth Metropolitan Region, rivalling national parks and reserves anywhere in Australia. The wetlands host 11 listed Threatened Flora Species (three of which do not occur elsewhere), 27 Priority Flora Species, three listed Threatened Fauna Species, and four listed Threatened Ecological Communities. The GBSW and the adjacent Yule Brook also contain significant aboriginal heritage values and, together, form the best remaining ecological corridor from the scarp to the Canning River.

    Our symposium offers an opportunity to learn more about this extraordinary place, and to explore best practice for sustainable development of the surrounding area.

    We plan to run talks in the morning from 9am, and a field trip to the wetlands in the afternoon. We anticipate that we will be finished by 4 pm. The seminar is free, and tea and coffee will be provided, but lunch will not be catered. However, there is a cafe on site where lunch can be purchased.
