Perth, December 13th
Fancy a day by the beach? Join the friendly team leaders at Conservation Volunteers and help us to support the amazing work that local Coastcare volunteer groups do. Port Kennedy is one of the few remaining coastal reserves and is under threat from weed invasion and vegetation degradation from erosion and uncontrolled access.
Coastcare groups have been managing the Port Kenendy Foreshore to help with erosion control and rehabilitation to improve the health and habitat of the coastal dunes. Come down for the day and help us plant some native seedlings to revegetate the coastal dune, create habitat and reduce erosion impacts.
Thornlie & Gosnells, December 16th
Join us for a day on the Canning River working with like minded volunteers to revegetate the river shores with native wetland species which will provide an important filtering service to keep our river water free of polluntants as well as providing habitat for our native fauna species.
Attadale, December 17th
The Friends of Attadale Foreshore Inc is an active and dynamic group of volunteers restoring the beautiful shoreline of the Swan River in Attadale. The group work with the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) in the Alfred Cove Marine Park and the adjacent foreshore Nature Reserve along Burke Drive, and with the City of Melville in the Attadale Conservation Reserve (a Bush Forever site). The Alfred Cove Marine Park in the Swan Estuary is internationally significant for its migratory birds, several of which are protected by the CAMBA and JAMBA treaties.
On this project day Conservation Volunteers will be assisting the Friends of Attadale Foreshore in removing invasive species from a riverine bush site.
South Perth, December 17th
The foreshore areas of the City of South Perth are adjacent to the Swan and Canning Rivers and are important ecological corridors aiding the movement of fauna from inland reserves to and from the river system. South Perth 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 in removing invasive plant species to improve the growth of native vegetation. Volunteers will also be planting new vegetation to stabilise the river banks and prevent 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.
Cottesloe, December 18th
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 at Cottesloe Beach on this day. Join our team leaders for a day out at the beach as we help plant native seedlings and remove invasive species to reduce erosion and improve habitat.
Mullaloo, December 19th
Perths' northern beaches are iconic and recieve 250,000 vistors a year. The natural areas along our coastline have been allowed to degrade considerably over the years with invasion of weed species, decline of native plants and severe erosion from tides, storms and the public.
Conservation volunteers will be assisting the Northern Coastcare groups to regenerate these coastal environments with the planting of local plants, tree guarding, hand weeding, green stock maintenance and general site maintenance.
