Up to 20 Volunteers from Cottesloe Coastcare have been selling Catalogues for the past thirteen years at the Annual Exhibition of Sculpture by the Sea in Cottesloe.
Adeline Morrissey sent this post for CCA’s website: The event on Sunday 4th March went really well and we had over 30 volunteers attend. We started at Grant Marine Park and volunteers picked up rubbish from the beach, dunes, parks, roadsides, verge gardens and even the ocean floor between Cottesloe and Swanbourne. A total of 13 massive garbage bags were filled with litter.
Come and join us at the very first Cottesloe Outdoor Film Festival.
It is on every Saturday night in February at the Cottesloe Civic Centre.
By spending many hours in the marquees selling catalogues, Cottesloe Coastcarers are part of the dozens of volunteers from all over Perth who contribute to the annual open-air sculpture exhibition of local, national and international artists.
Today was a beautiful Sunday and a fantastic team of 17 people gathered to water plants and collect seed at Cottesloe Native Garden. A monoculture of weedy Victorian teatree had been cleared from the site a year ago.
Malte and Leander from a rural area in Northern Germany concentrated on spotting and removing some very invasive Euphorbia species from our Dutch Inn site.
After two weeks of intensive planting in May and June we now have 3,500 new plants in our natural areas. We had some terrific help from Conservation Volunteers Australia, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Rio Tinto and for the first time the Green Army. The extra hands meant we could achieve so much more.
As part of our involvement with local community events, we have supported the annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibitions in Cottesloe for some 10 years, contributing many volunteer hours selling catalogues in marquees.
We love Cottesloe Coast– beach clean & picnic & Facebook page launch.
Mudurup Rocks is a special place on the Cottesloe coast. Its rocks tell of changing sea levels over thousands of years – as recently as 7000 years ago you could walk to Rottnest. For the Indigenous people it was a special fishing place – “the place of the yellow-finned whiting”.
Mike recently attended a symposium at Curtin University on Coastal Planning and Management in WA.
You will see from the attached photos that we are busy at our new foreshore (Coastwest funded) project at the bottom of Napier Street.
