Canning River Regional Park Volunteers (CRRPV)

Canning River Regional Park Volunteers are a small, dedicated group who work within the Canning River Regional Park, mostly between Nicholson Road Bridge in the east and Adenia Lagoon near the western end of the park.

Membership is free and is open to all who are registered as volunteers for the Canning River Regional Park. We would love your help with any of our activities – as little or as much time as you can afford!

Our aims
The group’s aims are to promote the Canning River Regional Park as a place of conservation and passive recreation, and to carry out activities, which enhance the natural values of the area.

About the Canning River Regional Park
Canning River Regional Park is a significant reserve along the Canning River, less than 10km from the CBD. It is surrounded by bushland and parkland areas and includes historic sites such as Woodloes Homestead, Mason’s Landing and Kent Street Weir.

There are picnic areas at Riverton Jetty Reserve, Wilson Park and Masons Landing. A number of pleasant walk trails meander through Eucalyptus rudis woodland, and several lakes provide added interest. It is an area where you are likely to encounter a variety of birds, frogs, turtles, insects and plants.
