Costal Reserves Restoration – Manning Lake, WA
Come and help us to protect a unique natural area! Volunteers will be involved in restoration activities such as exotic weed removal, mulching and green stock maintenance.
Perth’s’ coastal reserves are iconic and receive 250,000 visitors a year. The natural areas along our coastline have been allowed to degrade considerably over the years with invasion of weed species, decline of native plants and severe erosion from tides, storms and the public.
Manning Lake Reserve is one of City of Cockburn’s natural conservation reserves situated near the coast. There are a wide array of plants and animals which inhabit the bushland areas. Plants of Manning Lake Bushland range from the wetland dependent vegetation such as Freshwater Paperbark, to the upland vegetation such as the Chenille Honey Myrtle and Parrot bush.
Native fauna found in Manning Lake includes a range of frogs, reptiles and birds. These include examples such as the Motorbike Frog, Western Bluetongue, and Sacred Ibis.
The close proximity of this natural area to the community provides opportunities for Cockburn residents and others to enjoy this natural asset in their backyard.
