Friends of Lake Claremont
The Friends of Lake Claremont Ltd. (FOLC) is a community organisation established by local residents to assist in the conservation and enhancement of Lake Claremont.
Tucked away in the western suburb of Claremont, this precious Conservation Category Wetland and Bush Forever site is important in preserving Perth’s unique biodiversity. For over a century and a half, the effects of development (such as clearing, reclamation, pollution from surface run-off and weed encroachment) have taken its toll.
But the Friends of Lake Claremont (FOLC) Ltd. are working closely with the Town of Claremont and the local community to prevent further degradation and increase the health and biodiversity of the area.
