Adelaide , Nov 25th and 19 other dates
Patawalonga Creek was once a diverse watercourse running through the Adelaide plains which has now been contained in many places through the suburbs in concrete canals. There is, however, one part that you can still see some of the original Adelaide Plains creekside where now remains a significant remnant of the Swamp Paperbark plant community.
This part of the Patawalonga Creek runs through the grounds of Adelaide Airport and with their support Conservation Volunteers and Friends of Patawalonga Creek have been restoring the creek through seed collecting, native vegetation planting, weed control and surveys. This last little stretch of creek is an important refuge for aquatic life including tortoises, frog and waterbirds. Its’ Melaleuca trees are state heritage listed and there is also little blue bush that you won’t find in many places. The site has had fantastic changes over the years thanks to volunteers and it still needs your help to hold back the pressures of surrounding urbanisation.
Come and join our team of volunteers. It's a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and contribute to improving our environment.
PLEASE NOTE: It is also possible to meet on-site if that is easier for you, but please contact the office so we can confirm the exact meeting location and time.

Swanbourne, Nov 25th 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.
Hay Point, November 25th
Are you looking for a rewarding day out? Conservation Volunteers Australia have the thing for you!
Hay Point Foreshore is a stretch of quiet, sandy beach and luxuriant vegetation overlooking the turquoise waters of the Coral Sea. It is also a critically-endangered ‘beach scrub’ habitat, a remnant of vine forests on coastal sands which once stretched all along the Mackay region’s coastline. Home to many native plants, butterflies, birds and reptiles, it has suffered badly from past clearing and invasion by exotic species and needs some tender care to restore it to its former glory.
We are looking for people passionate about making a difference in the environment and able to lend a hand as we rehabilitate this beautiful area. Activities include planting native plants propagated in the nearby school nursery, maintaining existing plantings and of course some hard yakka handweeding!
Hope to see you there!

Avalon, Nov 25th and 1 other date
Avalon Coastal Reserve lies on the north side of Corio Bay and contains a variety of habitats, including intertidal mudflats and sandflats, seagrass beds, saltmarsh, small stands of White Mangroves, reed beds, salt evaporation lagoons of the Avalon saltworks and the grass filtration paddocks and sewerage treatment lagoons of the Werribee Treatment Complex.
The fauna values at Avalon Beach are of considerable significance. Notable fauna include the Altona Skipper Butterfly and many species of birds. Of great significance is the Orange-bellied Parrot which feeds on the saltmarsh vegetation during the late autumn and winter months. This species is significantly prone to future threats likely to result in extinction unless measures are taken to protect the habitats it depends on for survival.
Some of the notable flora that occurs at Avalon includes the Salt Club-sedge and Grey Glasswort which are both unusual for the region.
However, Avalon is also a popular location for visitors with a number of houses and fishing shacks, a beach, boat ramp, numerous jetties and rock groynes across the low beach. All this activity has an impact on the habitat values of the area.
Your assistance is needed to help maintain the high environmental values of the area through woody weed control and rubbish collection.
Yanchep, November 25th
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.

Join our team leaders for a day on the Yanchep coastline as we help Yanchep Coastcare remove invasive species to reduce erosion and improve habitat, count pollinator species and remove marine debris.
