BLACK COCKATOOS AND BANKSIAS

Black cockatoos and banksias are much-loved icons of our natural heritage.
Enjoy a morning learning about these bushland jewels at Bold Park – sharing information on their nature and interdependence; the fragility of their numbers and extent, and community efforts to conserve them into the future.

The Urban Bushland Council warmly invites you to join in a morning’s exploration of Black Cockatoos and Banksias at Bold Park.
Bold Park is one of the largest bushland remnants in the urban area of the Swan Coastal Plain, and home to the Western Australian Ecology Centre – which will be our meeting point.
Here, various speakers will first share some of their knowledge and understandings about these two iconic, but threatened bushland treasures, then guide you on a walk through beautiful Tuart-Banksia Woodland to the lookout at Reabold Hill, pausing along the way to identify the Banksia species and other native flora and fauna encountered.
From the lookout, panoramic views of the unique biodiversity of Bold Park within its urban context can be appreciated.
The event will also provide an opportunity to learn a little about community efforts to protect both Black Cockatoos and Banksias – as well as some of the challenges to their futures that remain.
