Herdsman Lake

Our natural environment needs your eyes and ears!

Little is known about the impact of climate change in Australia. The Pannwonica Trail is an ideal environment for recording environmental changes and will be helping bridge the information gap, but we need your help!

Why get involved?

  • Learn how climate change is affecting our native wildlife
  • Become a ClimateWatcher and help monitor the biodiversity along the Herdsman Lake trail
  • Make a real difference in your local community!

How to get involved

  • Collate a fieldguide, download a recording sheet and start walking.
  • The trail takes about 30 minutes to explore between the two bird hides. Make sure you wear closed shoes, sunscreen and a hat.


This ClimateWatch trail is at the northern end of Herdsman Lake near Jon Sanders Drive in Osborne Park WA.
