Things are looking great down at our Nature Play Space at Vlamingh. Look at what has happened!
Best wishes for a Happy Christmas to all our volunteers and supporters. It's been another full Coastcaring year where volunteers contributed 2,196 hours to the natural environment of our town.
Spinifex longifolius (Beach Spinifex) is our most important primary dune sand stabilising plant. It's spreading root network helps hold the sand and protects the dunes during winter storms.
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.
Hole digging the Cottesloe Coastcare way! For over 20 years we have worked on the best survival rates for seedlings. In our mostly steep, very exposed dune conditions we find that digging big bowl shaped holes gives the best results.
I came across this amazing photo from 1910, taken near Boyup Brook and published in a book by Helen Hack, The Mystery of the Mayanup Poltergeist.
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.
