11 Oct

Description

WALGA invites you to attend a Field Day in the Greater Bunbury Region that will provide an opportunity to learn about the characteristics of different ecological communities of the southern Swan Coastal Plain and discuss management and restoration techniques and challenges.  

The field day will cover sites representative of coastal plant communities including the threatened tuart woodlands, learn about dieback management in banksia/marri woodland, examine a site where cocoons were trialled as a way of increasing tree survival, discuss the challenges of managing small but diverse urban reserves in Eaton, and view the outcomes of long-term restoration works along the Brunswick River.  

Site visits will be led by expert ecologists from the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, Environmnetal staff from Local Government, Leschenault Catchment Group and community volunteers involved in the management of specific sites.

Please dress appropriately for the weather, wear long pants and enclosed shoes suitable for walking on unsealed tracks, and bring a hat and refillable water bottle.  Participants will be provided with bus transport.

Places are limited to 30 participants.

Morning tea and lunch will be provided and interested participants will receive a sample of a plastic free tree guard.

For further information, please email the WALGA Environment Team.
