Jorgensen Park Pavilion, Jorgensen Park Pavilion, end of Crescent Rd

Join us for a fascinating journey though the flora, fauna and history of Jorgensen Park by Joy McGilvray, co-ordinator Friends of Jorgensen Park and DRB member. Jorgensen Park became home of the DRB this year and Joy took us on an excursion in April to see all the active revegetation areas they have planted. We also did a brief plant and bird survey and saw much flora and fauna of interest. She also had fascinating charts of the vegetation levels in years gone by in comparison to now and the impact that housing has had on the park. Our DRB AGM will also be included but our Chair has promised not to be boring! Of course, there will be the same lovely refreshments afterwards and the opportunity to win two door prizes. See you on the 10th November in Kalamunda.

The DRB Nats. are doing a survey of an area of native bush in Kelmscott. This morning we are taking two small groups of year 6 students and their Science teacher from Good Shepherd Primary School with us on a nature walk around the area. We will also be teaching the children how to identify flowers, use binoculars for bird watching, and more. The end goal is for the children to learn enough about the natural history that they can make up their own nature walk, complete with photo stops and signs, and guide others around it. Please join us, the more of us who attend the more we will see, find and learn. It is such a good cause. The future of our natural environment lies in the hands of children such as these.
