EcoFest 2020

We are proud to announce that this year’s EcoFest 2020 – A Day in the Park for Conservation will be held on Sunday 22 March 2020 from 10am to 3pm at Hyde Park, North Perth.

This is a free family-friendly event organised by Conservation Council of WA, the state’s peak environmental organisation that has, for over 50 years, been the outspoken and independent voice for the environment.

The EcoFest 2020 is a great way for people to experience the benefits of sustainable living, find out more about our unique environment, and get involved in their local community.

The festival will feature food stalls, live music, Aboriginal cultural activities, and children’s workshops. There will also be interactive workshops and talks on sustainable living, conservation, climate action and more. There are so many ways to engage in positive action for our environment.
