Please join us for the massive 2018 winter planting season! The FOLC will need hundreds of volunteers to plant 30,000 native seedlings as we continue one of the largest ongoing restoration projects in Perth.

The FOLC host 4 public planting days for the local and wider community. All are held on Sunday mornings, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. Team leaders (5-7) are needed to help run each session. And 6-8 volunteers are need to help set-up from 8:00 – 9:00 am. Email folc.wa@gmail.comfor more info.

This year the FOLC will plant several areas on the east side of Lake Claremont (Areas A to D on the map shown) purchasing approx. 24,000 seedlings with a grant we won from the State NRM (Natural Resource Management) Program. Planting patches of native vegetation will increase wildlife habitat for insects, reptiles and birds, and make a more beautiful park.

What Urban Biodiversity Teaches Us

Speaker: Dr Ric How

 Over 80% of Australians live in urban environments. Large scale clearing of native ecosystems in cities like Perth has left only small remnants of the original vegetation and wetlands, resulting in a sharp decline in native flora and fauna. But just how much will this habitat loss and modification affect our wildlife? And how will this biodiversity loss affect our own future health and well-being?
