A Point Worth Appreciating - Swan Estuary Reserves Action Group
Pelican Point is a highly significant natural area in Crawley, and this event will give the Perth community a greater understanding and appreciation of it.
During this guided walking tour, participants will hear of its importance to Noongar people both culturally and for its environmental significance, and of its many roles during 200 years of European settlement. People will see a variety of water and short birds that inhabit Pelican Point and its unique but threatened ecological community of samphire and saltmarsh, plus the characteristic bushland of the Vasse complex, with its many bush birds.
An historian will describe how the area has supported a Catalina fleet and sailing clubs, and has always been recognised as a bird sanctuary, including by the Duke of Edinburgh who went birdwatching at Pelican Point during his 1963 royal visit.
Participants can engage in planting alongside SERAG volunteers, and finish with morning tea.
