Bryony Fremlin – Lake Forrestdale Nature Reserve
September 12 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm$3
- Situated in the city of Armadale, Lake Forrestdale Nature Reserve is a Class A reserve of 245 ha, gazetted for the conservation of flora and fauna.
- Lake Forrestdale is a Conservation Category Wetland, which is the highest priority for wetland conservation.
- It is internationally important as a habitat and refuge for water birds, and in 1990, together with Thomsons Lake, was designated to the List of Wetlands of International Importance under the Convention on Wetlands (Ramsar, Iran, 1971).
Bryony’s talk and slide show will be presented essentially through the eyes of an artist/photographer and will cover many aspects of the lake and surrounding bushland.
She will begin with a brief look at how the lake would have been before European settlement and its importance to the Aboriginal people.
With accompanying photographs, the flora and fauna of the reserve will be a large component of the talk.
Since settlement, the lake and its surrounds have undergone many changes and she will talk about the conservation issues faced today.
Bryony will end by describing the Friends of Forrestdale’s vision for the reserve that we think will be an important step in engaging the community with nature and at the same time help to protect the conservation values of the reserve.
