Dates and times

Event information

Please note the walk on the 12th has been rescheduled to the 19th.

Trees provide branches that support bird nests and spider webs, hollows used as a safe place to hide, and the flowers and leaves that feed animals of every type. This makes trees the cornerstone of the bushland ecosystem, supporting many other lifeforms. They are also equally important to humans, from the resources they provided to the Noongar people and early colonists, to the shady spots they create for us to relax under today.

Many of our trees are unique to this area, with the species found in a particular location adapted to suit the local soil and climate. Come and learn about the special traits of our local tree species, how to identify them, and how they support the many animals, fungi, and other plants that live here.

This free guided walk is led by the Friends of Bold Park Bushland.
