Swanbourne, Sep 25th and 4 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 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.
Kwinana, Sep 25th and 9 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 weeding days to protect native vegetation in priority bushland reserves or at coastal foreshore sites.
South Perth, Sep 26th and 6 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, Sep 27th and 5 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.

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.
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.
Melville, October 9th
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.
Kensington, Oct 11th and 5 other dates
The Kensington Bushland Reserve has both aesthetic significance and scientific heritage value as it remains in an almost natural, undisturbed state. This Banksia woodland remnant is one of the few remaining in the older southern suburbs, and as such supports a wide range of flora and fauna which have disappeared from much of the metropolitan area and the site is recognised by the State Government as a Bush Forever site.
We will be assisting the Town of Victoria Park to undertaken habitat maintenance activities. Join us to enjoy a day immersed in urban bushland and help us to protect this site for future generations.
Munster, October 13th
We are answering the call of Tangaroa Blue for all citizen scientists, schools, community groups, corporate groups and all ocean lovers to participate in the 2018 Marine Debris Project. Formerly named the WA Beach Clean-up Event, their new name reflects the important role of data collection in the clean-up process.
We will focus on cleaning Woodman Point and then the clean-up data we collect will help Tangaroa Blue track litter to its source and prevent it from entering the waste stream and harming our environment and marine life.
Join us to make a difference for the local marine environment!
Connolly, October 15th
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.
Cannington, October 17th
Join us for a day of planting in the Canning River Regional Park. The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions started planting here in 2005 as part of a broader restoration project across five key areas. We will be assisting them with infill planting to improve the condition of vegetation along the Canning River foreshore. Planting native seedlings will also increase connectivity between the five sites providing more habitat for our native wildlife.

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.
Murdoch, Oct 29th and 1 other date
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 storm 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.
We will be assisting the Murdoch Environmental Restoration Group to undertake some some handweeding in the Conservation Category Melaleuca Swamp, south of the campus. This pristine wetland has a high conservation value and is surrounded by a large mixture of healthy and disturbed vegetation.
Fremantle, Oct 30th 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.
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.
