Friends of Warwick Bushland

The Friends of Warwick Bushland is a community group that cares for the bushland within Warwick Conservation Reserve. The reserve is located in the suburb of Warwick in the City of Joondalup, Perth, Western Australia. The Group was established in 1999 by Karen Clarke and Robyn McElroy and built on Robyn’s group formed two years earlier to care for the Warwick Senior High School bushland.

The Friends of Warwick Bushland undertake activities such as biological surveys, collecting seeds, planting in degraded areas, weed control, removal of rubbish, guided walks, displays and talks, and facilitate educational activities with schools. The group has accumulated a large amount of historical and scientific knowledge about the site’s past use and its vegetation, flora, fauna and fungi.

Membership is free and open to all ages.
