2019 Australia Day awards for Cottesloe Coastcare

It was celebration time for Cottesloe Coastcare volunteers! We were awarded the Town of Cottesloe Community group of the Year honour at the combined councils Australia Day event.

Pigface

Carpobrotus virescens or pigface is one of our toughest dune plants with jewel-like pink flowers now in bloom.

A successful 2018 planting season

CCA’s planting season was a busy two months. We start planting each year in the first week of May as we find seedling survival rates on the Cottesloe foreshore are highest with this plan.

4000th plant in!

We had a great team from Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) join us on Tuesday to get the last of our 4000 plants in the ground this year. Mike is showing them our “deep hole” planting technique and the team got on with the job with gusto.
