Friends of the Cockburn Wetlands Education Centre

Welcome to  the Friends of the Cockburn Wetlands Education Centre







Established in 1993, the Cockburn Wetlands Centre is an independent, not-for-profit, community organisation dedicated to wetlands, restoration activities, environmental education, youth services & facility hire.




The Friends of the Cockburn Wetlands Education Centre assist the Centre in environmental, land care and educational issues concerning the regeneration and conservation of the Bibra and North Lake Reserves of the Beeliar Regional Park.




The Centre lies in the suburb of Bibra Lake, 15 km south of Perth, Western Australia. It provides a gateway to the Beeliar Regional Park, which consists of two parallel chains of wetlands including 27 different wetlands.



The Friends are keen birdwatchers and have monitored waterbirds on a quarterly basis since 1996. Key activities of the group include regular bird surveys and assisting the Centre with grants. Flora surveys, seed collecting, selective planting and seeding, weed control, assisting the herbarium, administration, education and working in the nursery are activities undertaken by the Friends in the past. Assistance in these areas is always required.









Numerous volunteers implement the Centre's activities along with the assistance of a small band of dedicated staff. 


As a member you may be passive or active in your support.  Benefits include a quarterly electronic newsletter, email invitations to all functions held at the Centre and free use of our reference library.


No experience is necessary. All are welcome.
