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 includes a long stretch of the river, bushland, parkland and 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.

What we do

  • Carry out activities in connection with a number of specific project sites within the park.
  • Hold monthly workdays and small group week day work sessions as necessary – planting, mulching, weeding, seed collection, etc.
  • Hold monthly meetings – on the third Wednesday of each month at Canning River Eco-Education Centre, Wilson at 7:30pm.
  • Carry out two bird surveys per year – one in April, one in November.
  • Occasionally combine with other organizations to contribute to larger scale projects – such as Liege Street Demonstration Wetland and Tree Day Plantings.
  • Attend community functions – such as WA Day, Science Day and Clean Up Australia Day.
  • Provide occasional walks to inform the public of environmental features, development, and concerns within the park.
