Investigate environmental change and management within the Swan Canning Riverpark - Incursion

The SwanCanning Riverpark and the iconic rivers at its heart are the centrepiece of Perth. Blessed with diverse and resilient ecosystems, the Swan and Canning
rivers are a recreational playground and a source of vibrant commercial and tourism activity. Students undertake a range of hands on tasks to understandthe importance of biodiversity in the riverine ecosystem; the major threats to its health and how those threats are being managed. The excursion can be done with a Geography or Biology focus:

Geography: Engage in fieldwork to collect primary data for investigation into how the impacts on land cover are being addressed and evaluated.

Science: Engage in fieldwork to collect primary data and monitor biodiversity of the Riverpark.

It is highly recommended that schools undertake the Swan Canning River system inquiry package (one-hour catchment model incursion before the excursion). The package is designed to prepare the students for the fieldtrip by providing relevant information so we free up as much time as possible for hands-on fieldwork whilst on the excursion.
