Join in our Green Calendar of Events

Date08 May 2024

It’s been a busy month of environmental activities in the City of Rockingham, and there is more to come - so grab your gloves and join us on our Green Calendar of Events.

Our participation in the WA Tree Festival from 6 April to 5 May 2024 had a fantastic response from the City of Rockingham community, with our events meeting maximum participation rates.

A big thank you for making the WA Tree Festival such a success goes to:

  • The City of Stirling and WALGA for bringing together communities to understand the importance of trees in a warming climate, cooling us down, providing habitat for wildlife and improving mental health and wellbeing.
  • Birdlife WA for delivering a riveting Bird Walk. Rockingham residents helped identify 22 species of birds in Don Shepherd Nature Reserve Trail, a key location of remnant bushland supporting biodiversity within the City.  A full list of birds identified can be found on the Birdlife WA website
  • Native Plants WA – With 11,000 plants given out to community, the City’s winter gardens have been boosted by native, waterwise seedlings, creating a premise for gardens buzzing with backyard biodiversity.

Coming events
