Save Beeliar Wetlands Rally

Aug 20 2011 11:00

Saturday 20th August 2011, 11am -1pm at Bibra Lake reserve, Progress Drive (between Hope Road and Gwilliam Drive)

Gather together on the shores of our precious Bibra Lake to send a loud and proud message to the state government. The days of covering wetlands with bitumen are gone. Building more roads only leads to more traffic, more pollution and more impacts on the health of our communities and environment.
Please join us in sending a message to the EPA and the State Government asking them to abandon their plans to destroy the beautiful Beeliar Wetlands  with an expensive and unsustainable road to nowhere.

We will not allow our Beeliar Wetland to be destroyed by a major highway extension. Read more »
