About Us

Formed in March 1961, the Armadale Branch is one of the oldest branches in the Society – celebrating our 60th anniversary in 2021.

Branch members actively participate in the conservation and revegetation of bushland parks and reserves in the Armadale area i.e. both Darling Scarp and Swan Coastal Plain flora. Such areas include: Bungendore Park (498 ha in Bedfordale) and Armadale Settlers’ Common (383 ha); Creyk Park (Armadale) and Fletcher Park (Wungong); custodians of many reserves e.g. Harrisdale, Forrestdale Lake, Gilcoe Place, Anstey-Keane reserves.
