Mandurah Nature Trails

Thank you to all the volunteers who have helped us to plant and nurture hundreds of trees in the last couple of years, especially those that have been out there watering throughout the long hot summer.

Now is the time to plan where we’re going to plant next. Can you help us? Keep an eye on our Calendar of Free Activities or subscribe to our newsletter for updates, or register your interest at info@mehg.org.au ·

Subject to available grant funding, we will continue to work to improve and connect areas of remnant bushland by planting lush vegetation corridors to form beautiful shaded walk and cycle paths for the wellbeing of people, wildlife and the environment.

This is an ambitious project and we will need lots of volunteers to help us to help us restore and enhance reserves in Mandurah by planting, mulching, weeding and watering.

The trees will improve biodiversity and increase habitat and food for the survival of native flora and fauna, in particular endangered species such as the Carnaby’s black cockatoo.

Thank you to the volunteers who have helped us so far, including local residents, John Tonkin Students, Bush Ranger Cadets and members of Men of the Trees and Mandurah Rotary Club. View the photos at mehg.org.au/mandurah-tree-advocates

Community involvement in the planting and the ongoing maintenance will increase community ownership and utilisation of these reserves in the future.

The Green Corridor Network says: “It’s crucial to establish wildlife breeding trails throughout suburbia. These trails not only provide essential habitats for animals but also allow for necessary migration patterns. By implementing these breeding trails, we can guarantee the preservation of wildlife and the rejuvenation of our communities with their presence.”
