Friends of Lake Claremont Ltd.
Come along and discover Lake Claremont, a Conservation Category Wetland and Bush Forever Site. Our planting project is part of a massive ongoing effort to revegetate the wetland and the surrounding bushland. The Friends of Lake Claremont (FOLC) are working closely with the Town of Claremont to help increase biodiversity around the Lake and provide habitat for a variety of insects, reptiles and birds. There are over 100 species of birds that live at or visit Lake Claremont. There has been a noticeable increase in the number of bush birds around the lake due to the restoration work, including the return of Variegated Fairy-wrens. The plantings will also help enhance Lake Claremont’s function as an important local ecological corridor between Herdsman Lake, Bold Park and the Swan River, which is also part of the larger wildlife link from Kings Park (the city) to the Indian Ocean.
