2013 has been a busy and successful year for Cottesloe Coastcare. Our Chairman, Mike Ewing briefly spoke about the achievements of the year at our recent Christmas party - held on the main lawn at our beautiful Civic Centre.
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....
William Parkinson wrote the letter (below) to the Post newspaper. CCA volunteers spend lots of time picking up rubbish, which has often been carelessly discarded with no thought to the problems caused to the environment and to marine life. We love our coast too and encourage everyone to take care of it!
Sunday’s hot weather did not stop a small team of Coastcarers from attacking the weeds at Dutch Inn. We were glad to have some extra help from our local Bunnings store as well as UWA volunteers.
We love Cottesloe Coast– beach clean & picnic & Facebook page launch.
Congratulations Kate! Cottesloe Coastcare volunteers join other northern suburbs Coastal volunteers who work under Kate Sputore's 'wing' to congratulate her on the Landcare award she received this week.
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.
Many thanks to Chez Scalise for this blog post and to all the great team from PwC. For some volunteers from the PwC team, we were returning to back to the same site where we helped the incredible team at the Cottesloe Coastcare Association, and for others it was a new opportunity to help the Association in their mission to preserve the local ecosystem.
Planting has started for 2013 and we got off to a great start with an excellent team of volunteers from Pricewaterhouse Coopers who gave us a day of work!
45 people and 4 ospreys joined us for our Heritage Walk at Mudurup Rocks on Saturday April 20th.
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".
Cottesloe Coastcare volunteers were delighted that our Chairman Mike Ewing was awarded the honour of Cottesloe Citizen of the Year at the Australia Day citizenship and annual awards ceremony on January 26th 2013.
