WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We are a not-for-profit organisation committed to nurturing a passion for nature through education, innovation and communication.
We are currently undergoing the first phase of the revitalisation plan for the Herdsman Lake Discovery Centre! The generous support of Lotterywest has enabled us to start creating a new, state-of-the-art Discovery Centre with interactive exhibits and displays focusing on the incredible diversity and uniqueness of Herdsman Lake. We need to raise an additional $50,000 to complete the project and we are calling on our valued supporters to help raise the additional funds. Revitalising the Herdsman Lake Discovery Centre will ensure that future generations of Western Australians will be able to enjoy this idyllic location, learn about nature and develop a passion for the environment.
