NAIDOC Week Cultural Walk
July 5 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Join an Aboriginal Elder who will share cultural stories while members from the Friends of Mary Carroll Wetlands group will showcase some spectacular local native plants.
The Mary Carroll Park wetlands, in the heart of Gosnells, provide a very important breeding, roosting and summer refuge site for local and international water birds.
The wetlands fill with storm water in winter and generally drying up in late summer. They support a wide range of water birds, including Pacific Black Duck, Musk Duck, Pink-Eared Duck, Blue-Billed Duck, Grebe, Teal, Pelican and Black Swan. They are also recognised as one of the largest roosting sites for Sacred Ibis.
They provide important water bird breeding habitat, and are a very important regional summer refuge as smaller wetlands in Perth dry out. In addition to water birds, they support songbirds, reptiles, amphibians and turtles.
The Friends of Mary Carroll Wetlands work with the City of Gosnells to manage the wetlands and their surrounds. The aim of the group is to rehabilitate, conserve and maintain the natural environment of the wetlands, and to promote community awareness of their important values.
