On Thursday 21 February, we attended a wonderful event about the Baigup Wetlands in the City of Bayswater and its future. It was well attended and exhibited the fantastic progress that has been mode in improving the wetland in relatively short timeframe.

 

Baigup Wetland Interest Group coordinator, Penny Lee spoke of the diversity of different ecosystems at the one site, providing habitat for an array of wildlife.

It is heartening to see what can be achieved. The concept of working together with State government agencies, local councils and other ‘Friends of’ groups to create a regional park along the Swan and Helena Rivers was raised.
