The Murdoch Branch is a lively and dynamic group which holds monthly meetings with a range of interesting guest speakers. Meetings are open to anyone interested in WA flora. Our Committee enjoys making it a great experience for all – read about the team here.
In 2023 we have introduced live-streaming our guest speaker monthly talks, which you can watch anytime. All recordings can be found here.
The Branch hosts a number of spring walks at Wireless Hill, Kwinana and Samson Park, as well as other excursions. The group is also involved in revegetation activities through various ‘Friends of’ groups and along the Wildlife Corridor in Cockburn.
The Branch also offers a number of prizes to students. Each year Murdoch Branch gives an award to a top student studying Environmental and Conservation Science at Murdoch University, and a top student in the Conservation and Ecosytem Management course at South Metropolitan TAFE.
Come and say Hi at our monthly gatherings held on the 1st Thursday of each month (except January) at The Wetlands Centre Cockburn, Hope Road, Bibra Lake. Doors open at 7:30pm with guest speakers normally starting around 8pm.
