Melville, Jun 26th and 6 other dates
The City of Melville manages an 18km foreshore area that is defined by a narrow chain of reserves and natural vegetation. There are also some beautiful bushland reserves away from the river that provide wonderful opportunities to spot wildflowers and enjoy a touch of serenity within the suburbs.
Join our volunteers to assist in removing invasive weed species that threaten the biological diversity, particularly the wildflowers, at various parks and foreshore locations. Plantings will also be undertaken to restore native vegetation in these areas.
Fremantle, June 27th
The Fremantle Prison is WA's only world heritage-listed building and is the most intact of all Australian convict sites. Built by convicts in the 1850s, Fremantle Prison was used as place of incarceration for 136 years before being decommissioned as an operating maximum security goal in 1991.
Join this project for an exclusive opportunity to go behind-the-scenes and experience a taste of life behind bars as we assist the Heritage Conservation staff to document the contents of the cells.
PLEASE NOTE: These are single-day projects, but we require volunteers that are available for all three-days. Please contact the Office on 9335 2777 or email@example.com if you would like to get involved.
Rockingham, June 27th
The few remaining coastal reserves in the industrial zone are under threat from weed invasion and vegetation degradation from erosion and uncontrolled access from the public, four wheel drives and motorbikes.
We will be working at Singleton Beach to restore and rehabilitate this local urban coastline. Join us for the day and help plant some native seedlings to increase the biodiversity at this site.
Fremantle, June 28th
Fremantle is well known for its beaches, heritage buildings and bustling markets, but did you also know that the City of Fremantle is a One Planet Council, focusing on creating places that enable people to live, work and do business within the natural limits of the planet!
Join us as we assist with ongoing efforts to create and link habitats through revegetation plantings and protect remnant vegetation though weed management, as well as support coastal dune maintenance activities.
Forrestdale, Jun 28th and 6 other dates
Forrestdale Lake Nature Reserve is a seasonal lake of approximately 220 hectares. This A-Class reserve is a still largely natural wetland, with some adjoining native vegetation. The lake is a major breeding, migration stop-over and semi-permanent drought refuge area for waterbirds including black swans, many species of ducks and other waterfowl and migratory and non-migratory wading birds.
Join us to assist the Friends of Forrestdale Lake and the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions to control large woody weeds within the reserve. These invasive weeds outcompete native vegetation and clog the water system, destroying natural habitat for the native wildlife. Some track maintenance activities will also be undertaken on some projects.
Cockburn, Jun 29th and 2 other dates
The City of Cockburn is home to a number of conservation reserves and wetlands, including Thomson’s Lake, a wetland of international significance. Within the Regional Parks there are hundreds of hectares of bushland containing important remnants of low coastal heath and Melaleuca Paperbark dampland communities, as well as banksia and eucalypt woodland. These habitats provide refuge for bandicoots, possums, frogs, turtles, reptiles and a wide variety of bird species.
Come along and assist with planting, invasive weed removal, mulching and green stock management to help protect and restore these sites with high environmental, heritage and recreational value.
Fremantle, Jun 30th and 2 other dates
We are now entering the planting season, the perfect excuse to get down and dirty while making a long-term investment for yourself, your children, grandchildren and beyond!

Many hands really do make light work, so come along for the day (or even just a couple of hours) to enjoy the company of like-minded people and the knowledge that you are doing your part to contribute to a healthy future for the planet.
Perth, Jul 2nd and 2 other dates
The City of Nedlands features a variety of natural areas and vegetation types from coastal shrublands and grasslands, to inland Jarrah - Banksia woodlands as well as riverine environments along the Swan River containing limestone cliff faces and outcrops. These natural areas provide important habitat and ecological linkages for native flora and fauna as well as offering passive recreation opportunities such as exercise, nature study, photography and bushwalking.
Join us this week as undertake planting and weed management activities in some beautiful bushland sites.
Connolly, July 4th
Carnaby Reserve in Connolly boasts a highly diverse ecosystem. The site has over 16 species of orchids and is home to a large array of birdlife including the endangered Carnabys Black Cockatoo. This reserve is even home to a native marsupial mouse!
The Friends of Carnaby Reserve work in conjunction with the Natural Areas Team of the City of Joondalup to maintain this bushland so that it thrives unhindered by excessive weed invasion.
Join our team for the day as we explore some of the hidden paths at Carnabys Reserve and plant native vegetation to assist with the rehabilitation efforts at this important site.
Fremantle, July 6th
Microbats are small bats with a wingspan of about 25cm that feed on insects such as mosquitos. Many microbats use echolocation to navigate in complete darkness with some species spending their days deep within caves, while others rest beneath bark on trees and in man-made structures such as houses and buildings.
Every night, microbats eat 40% - 50% of their own bodyweight, which is up to 1,000 of those pesky mosquitos each night! So they are definitely great to have in your backyard. However, the removal of trees in urban areas has resulted in microbats having fewer places to live and breed, and their numbers are therefore diminishing in built-up areas.
Microbat boxes are a way of increasing the number of microbats within suburbia, and obviously decrease the number of mosquitoes and other insect pests.
Join us for a day to build microbat boxes that will then be donated back to the community.
Maylands, Jul 6th and 2 other dates
The Swan and Canning River catchment system is host to a range of important and unique ecosystems and a diverse range of native and endemic flora and fauna. Rapid population growth and increased urban development in the Swan Canning catchment, has led to a decline in water quality, dwindling water resources and native vegetation.
The Friends of Maylands Samphires help to look after Clarkson Reserve and Wright Crescent Samphires which contains saltmarsh and samphire communities. We will be helping the group by removing invasive weeds that are threatening the survival of the native flora.
Swanbourne, Jul 9th and 13 other dates
Conservation Volunteers in conjunction with the Friends of Lake Claremont and the Town of Claremont have planted thousands of seedlings at this beautiful site over the last couple of years. Join us to become part of the story as we undertake more plantings and support the revegetated areas with green stock maintenance and exotic weed removal.
Lake Claremont has been a multi-use parkland and golf course that has been made a Bush Forever and Conservation Category Wetland site. Due to the impact of clearing the bushland for the golf course, the area has now been targeted for rehabilitation to try and establish a link to surrounding fragmented bushland between Kings Park and the coast. It is an important area for the Carnabys Black Cockatoo who roost and forage in the area.
Morangup, July 11th
The Darling Scarp is a beautiful natural phenomenon, providing often dramatic habitat for our native flora and fauna and an amazing location for recreational activities for residents of Perth and surrounds. Much of the scarp has been allocated as reserve – including the Wallaby Way Reserve in Morungup, which is a slice of isolated remnant bushland between properties near Toodyay. With pockets of melaleuca forest and natural springs, the area is an important site for local marsupials including woylies, kangaroos and bandicoots.
Enjoy a couple of nights away from Perth and come together with your community to explore and rehabilitate areas within this beautiful reserve and its surrounds.
Kwinana, Jul 23rd and 2 other dates
The City of Kwinana is dedicated to conserving remnant vegetation and ecological corridors as habitat for the Carnaby's Black Cockatoo and other endangered flora and fauna. Ecological corridors are areas of local native vegetation linking local biodiversity areas, such as remnant bushland and other natural areas. These ecological linkages provide important feeding and roosting sites for the Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo.
Join one or more of the upcoming planting days to re-establish native vegetation in priority bushland reserves or at coastal foreshore sites.
Bibra Lake, July 29th
Come and help us celebrate National Tree Day! Bibra Lake is located in the south of Perth in the City of Cockburn and is part of the Beeliar Regional Park wetlands. It is home to a number of flora and fauna including a small mammal called a Quenda, bandicoots and migratory water birds. This reserve also provides a vital food source for the endangered Carnaby's Black Cockatoo.
We will be working alongside community friends groups to restore and rehabilitate this local urban wetland. Come down for the morning on National Tree Day and help us plant some native seedlings to increase the biodiversity and improve the water quality of this beautiful reserve. The City of Cockburn will be providing a free BBQ lunch as a thank you to all of the volunteers hard work.
