Kadjil the Crow man

Mudurup Rocks is believed to be one of the traditional haunts of the crow or warrdung according to Aboriginal oral history. Now the stories from Aboriginal elders have been recorded by Dr. Barb Dobson and Ken Macintyre, local anthropologists with a long connection with Cottesloe.

Wonderful Woodside weeders

CCA had a very productive three day ‘weedathon’ in late October. We are very grateful to Woodside who sponsored two small work teams from Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) for the first two days.

Another great PwC team

We had another terrific bunch of workers from PwC at Mudurup last week. Thanks  to Tom Durkin for this blog post and to the rest of the team for their help in keeping our plants alive – your support really helps….

The last seedling is planted for 2013!

It is always a good feeling to have finished planting for the year! We dug the last hole and watered in the last seedling on July 12th. Since then the plants have received some good falls of rain so it all augurs well, to date, for a good survival rate this year.

And the ospreys came too….

45 people and 4 ospreys joined us for our Heritage Walk at Mudurup Rocks on Saturday April 20th.
