The City of Stirling strongly encourages and supports the efforts of the two Coastcare groups and six Bushcare volunteer conservation groups whose combined efforts greatly assist the City in the restoration and management of our natural areas.
The role of conservation volunteers
The City of Stirling manages 616 hectares of bushland, 37 wetlands and 6.7km of coastal dunes and beaches stretching northwards from Peasholm Street Dog Beach to Watermans Bay. The eastern extent of the City extends inland to Mirrabooka, Dianella and Mount Lawley.
With such a big job on our hands we strongly encourage and support the efforts of our community-based volunteer conservation groups whose combined efforts greatly assist the City in the restoration and management of our natural areas.
There are two Coastcare groups and six Bushcare groups operating in the City of Stirling.
Depending on the season and the nature of the reserve they have adopted, conservation volunteer groups undertake a variety of tasks:
Planting in winter
Weeding in spring and summer
Community information days and guided public walks throughout the year
Clean-up days and rubbish collection busy bees.
They also assist the City’s conservation staff to identify conservation needs and issues within their respective sites.
If you wish to be a part of a conservation volunteer group, or to assist them on one of their activity days, please:
