Fauna & Flora

The City support many initiatives to help educate and support the community to learn and care for our diverse range of native flora and fauna species in our region. Our education officers often engage with local schools and support centres to help highlight to students ways they can contribute and connect to their local environment and community. If you would like to know more please get in contact the City of Kalamunda team to arrange a school incursion and learn more about how the City can support your education of students in our local environment.

Some City of Kalamunda programs which schools and education centres can get involved include:

  • Adopt-A-Patch
    This schools-based program focuses on educating and connecting students to their local environment as well as showing them ways to care and learn about broader sustainability principles, local flora and fauna habitats, indigenous culture, environmental rubbish impacts and community connections.
  • Microbat Project
    A City habitat enhancement project to create homes for local micro bats that it is hoped it will reduce local mosquito numbers.
  • Friends Groups 
    These groups undertake activities which help protect and enhance our natural areas including planting native flora, weed control, rubbish removal. Each group care for certain parcels of bushland and contribute to the conservation and maintenance of our natural environment.
