Kenwick, November 20th
Lakewook Cove Reserve is currently a degraded habitat, infested by introduced grasses and woody weeds. SERCUL have received funding to undertake a two year revegatation project at this site to expand the impact of their Living Stream Project and improve the condition of this Reserve. We will be sending teams of volunteers during their wetland planting period, so join us to assist with this important project and learn the value of healthy waterways within our urban areas.
Please note that the location for the 14th, 15th, 19th and 20th of November will be at Brockman Park, on the corner of Brockman Ave / Stringfellow drive in Bull Creek at Bull Creek reserve.
South Perth, Nov 21st and 2 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.
Perth, Nov 22nd and 1 other date
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 as we assist with seed collection and weed management activities in some beautiful bushland sites.
Swanbourne, Nov 23rd and 1 other date
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 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, Nov 26th and 1 other date
The remnant bushlands within Mosman Park support priority flora and fauna species including the Rainbow Bee-eater and are significant in providing an ecological link within the south-west region. These bushland areas also provide an important buffer between the encroaching urban landscape and the Swan River waterway, being essential to maintain healthy aquatic ecosystems by providing an important ecological link in the river bank landscape.
Join us at Chidley Point Reserve and Mt Lyell Park to assist in the reduction of the occurrence of dominant invasive species. This will provide a favourable environment for the growth and regeneration of native flora, which will enhance the habitat value for native fauna and increase the ecological integrity of the bushland areas.
Perth, Nov 28th and 1 other date
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.
Broome, November 28th
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.
Mundaring, Dec 3rd and 10 other dates
Join us to protect natural habitat by removing invasive Blackberries a weed of "National Significance" due to its ability to quickly take over native vegetation, if not carefully managed. Especially, along riverbanks and creeklines, where it can form dense thickets creating ideal habitat for other invasive species such as Rabbits and Foxes.
You will have the opportunity to enjoy the native flora and fauna of the area, only a short distance away from the beautiful John Forrest National Park while learning some plant identification skills and weed control methods, including hand-pulling and cut & swab depending on the size of the plant.
Fremantle, Jan 15th, 2019 and 1 other date
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.
The City of Fremantle are currently remediating the carpark at Port Beach after the coastal erosion and retreating a small section. Coastal dune will then be created and our team will then assist to stabilise the dune with matting and brushing.
