Catchment carer's trail

Catchment carer's trail
  • Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)


Forests provide essential resources, including clean water. Through an inspiring activity-based walk to Mundaring Weir we examine the factors that influence the water cycle in nature, and how water flow in a catchment connects everything. We consider the impact of management issues such as salinity, dieback and erosion; as well as water quality, water security, and our water supply system. We then look at how our personal choices affect the sustainability of our forest and water resources. A highlight is a panoramic view from a secret spot!

This excursion is suitable for all Waterwise Schools.
