Forrestdale, Aug 20th and 3 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.
Rockingham, August 21st
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.
South Perth, Aug 22nd and 8 other dates
The foreshore areas of the City of South Perth are adjacent to the Swan and Canning River and are important ecological links for the movement of fauna from inland reserves to and from the river system. It contains the most extensive wetlands in the lower reaches of the Swan and Canning Rivers, with foreshore vegetation that is not found anywhere else along these rivers. The area provides habitat for over 74 species of land and water birds, including 14 significant bird species, 12 reptiles and 6 amphibian species.
Join our volunteers to assist in weed management activities to improve native vegetation, as well as planting new vegetation to stabilise the river banks and protect areas from erosion. We will be returning to each of these sites over the next three years, allowing our volunteer teams to see the impact and transformation of their efforts.

Swanbourne, Aug 29th and 5 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.
Perth, Aug 30th and 9 other dates
Perth is home to some of the most pristine beaches in the world. With their crystal clear turquoise waters and clean white sand, our beaches attract crowds of thousands over the summer months. But with increased urban developments, our iconic locations are now under threat from invasion of weed species, decline of native plants and severe erosion from tides, storms and uncontrolled public access.
We will be assisting local Northern and Southern Coastcare groups to regenerate coastal environments through planting, invasive weed removal and general site maintenance.
Melville, Sep 6th and 1 other date
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.
Kwinana, Sep 7th and 1 other date
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.
Lesmurdie, Sep 12th and 1 other date
Lesmurdie Falls National Park on Perth's Darling Scarp is a popular picnic and bushwalking destination, boasting a spectacular 50-metre waterfall, wildflower rich hillside heaths and sweeping views of the city below.
Join our team leaders for a day as we assist the local “Friends group” in their efforts to get 12,000 plants in the ground this year. These works will help improve the habitat value of the area by reintroducing native vegetation.
Come along and enjoy the company of like-minded people, and the knowledge that you are contributing to improve our local environment.

Maylands, October 5th
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.

Broome, Nov 21st and 1 other date
This rewarding turtle conservation project is located in the breathtaking natural surrounds of Western Australia’s Kimberley Coast.
The northern Australian coastline provides an excellent nesting ground for turtles. Flatbacks are the only marine turtle species that is endemic to Australian waters, but much remains unknown about them. Returning to the exact beach at which they were hatched, flatback turtles return to Eco Beach during November – December to nest.
Join us for a week to enjoy close encounters with flatback turtles and contribute through citizen science to our long term research project, recording data on nesting activities. Each morning we will undertake early morning beach patrols looking for new turtle nests and tracks. Then in the evenings a beach walk will occur to search for nesting flatback turtles.
