Sunday was National Tree Day and we had a terrific turnout at Vlamingh. More than 50 people helped us plant over 700 plants in our new nature discovery space.
We know that many city children have little exposure to their natural world. So CCA volunteers are very excited about our involvement in a restoration project on the north side of Vlamingh Memorial.
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.
Clean Up Australia has been going for 27 years and Cottesloe Coastcare is a regular participant. This year we focused on the southern beach starting at Vlamingh Memorial and it was good to welcome some newcomers to the team of Coastcare regulars.
On November 10th we were delighted to welcome a great team from Woodside. Conservation Volunteers Australia organised the day but one of our CCA project sites benefitted enormously from their contribution.
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.
UWA Student’s and Cottesloe Coastcare ioin Forces on the 21st of February. Residents from the University of Western Australia’s Trinity College joined with volunteers from the Cottesloe Coastcare Association and Coastcare officers Kate and Sharon to carry out rehabilitation works at Vlamingh Memorial in Cottesloe.
Earlier this week CCA volunteers were very pleased that a team from UWA’s Trinity Residential College gave us a hand. Tiny seedlings planted at Vlamingh 8 months ago are growing well despite this long hot and very dry summer.
