Gidgegannup, Apr 26th and 2 other dates
The spread of urbanisation and loss of natural habitat, has resulted in wildlife corridors becoming increasingly fragmented across Perth. Susannah Brook Reserve is an example of this, with the ecological health of this catchment also being important to maintain water quality in the Swan River.
Join us for a day in the hills as we assist the City of Swan to remove Cotton Bush, a toxic weed that has become prevalant in the south-west of WA.

Forrestdale, April 27th
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.
Perth, April 30th
Whiteman Park is a unique recreation and conservation reserve and a major tourist destination. It is also thought to be the largest metropolitan park in the world. The 4000 hectare park boasts healthy and lush banksia woodland corridors and is home to over 450 native plant species and 120 native animals.
Whiteman Park has a history of mixed uses including farming and large areas of ex pasture are slowly being converted to native bushland. We will be helping the rangers at Whiteman Park to remove invasive weeds that are around last year’s planting sites. This will improve the biodiversity of the area and encourage the growth of the native flora and fauna.
Baigup, May 1st
Located within the City of Bayswater, Baigup Wetland is a significant remnant parcel of bushland, which forms part of the 'Swan River Flood Plain'. As part of our ongoing conservation activities at Baigup, we will be removing exotic weed species to restrict seed germination, as well as general suppression and to improve soil quality.
Our aim is to see Baigup Wetland protected and preserved into the future as a valuable natural resource for wildlife, for the health of the Swan River, and for human recreation, wellbeing and education.
Perth, May 7th
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.
Biodiversity has become an increasingly important topic over recent years. Having a diverse range of plants and animals in your local area not only makes it a more interesting and beautiful place to live but biodiversity also aids in the natural purification of the air we breathe and water we drink.
Perth’s wetlands and catchments are valuable natural assets because they provide habitat for aquatic and terrestrial flora and fauna, and support biodiversity and threatened species. They drain land, transport and store water, and carry flood waters. Wetlands influence the water quality of rivers and streams by removing pollutants such as sediments, nutrients, organic and inorganic matter and some pathogens.
This week, we will be at various locations within the Swan Canning catchment. Join our team leaders for a day out in the environment as we help out with mulching, green stock management, invasive weed removal and much more.
Please note that locations will be confirmed closer to the date.
Peron, May 7th
The threat from weeds to Lake Richmond and Cape Peron and their critically endangered ecological communities has grown recently. The unique thrombolites and the sedge community fringing Lake Richmond in particular is at great risk.
Conservation Volunteers will be joining the Friends of Point Peron to assist the City of Rockingham with invasive weed removal, track maintenance and debris collection. Learn a bit about the ecology of the Lake and our regional park and what’s been done to look after it by the council and the Department of Parks and Wildlife.
Perth, May 24th
Please note this day is for Chevron staff only. Thank you for your understanding and consideration.
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.
Join our team leaders for a day out at the beach as we help out with invasive weed removal, green stock management, marine debris surveys and much more.
Perth, June 7th
Please note this day is for Pernod Ricard staff only. Thank you for your understanding and consideration.
Rottnest Island is a unique environment, providing habitat to thousands of terrestrial, coastal and marine flora and fauna species including migratory birds. But with increased tourism and urban development, it’s ecosystems are under threat from invasion of weed species, decline of native plants, severe dune erosion and degradation of beach and bushland health due to uncontrolled public access. Alongside the Rottnest Island Authority, Conservation Volunteers are addressing threats of erosion and degradation by revegetating damaged dune systems and 4x4 tracks, reducing the impacts of marine debris via collection and removal and assisting with propagation of native plants in the nursery.
For Responsib’All Day, Pernod Ricard employees will be assisting with marine debris collection to improve water quality and habitat value for Rottnest Island.
