Careniup Swamp Reserve Management Plan - Draft

Consultation has concluded

The Careniup Swamp Reserve in Gwelup is made up of unique environments including wetlands, large open spaces and urban forests and fields, and has become the perfect place for bird watching, photography, nature play and walking. It is also home to the Secret Garden – a place that is special to the City and our residents.

We want to make sure this important natural resource is looked after well into the future so have developed a plan to ensure that effective management of the reserve is maintained.

The Careniup Swamp Reserve Management Plan- Draft aims to balance the environmental and conservation needs of the reserve, while still meeting the current and future recreational needs of the community.
