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!
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
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.
