Location: South Street Campus - meet at the Vet Farm Lab (Farm Rd, near Murdoch Dr), follow the signs.

Help plant habitat trees, shrubs and sedges in Melaleuca Swamp. Revegetation of this site began in 2012 and as well as beautifying the area, it creates habitat for quendas and small birds in this part of campus. There will also be another planting day on 5th June in the Wildlife Corridor and 22nd June in the Banksia Woodland, so come along to one or all events if possible.

We supply:  gloves and tools (though you can bring your own gloves and a spade/trowel if you have them), training and a free sausage sizzle afterward.  A range of tasks is available for different abilities.

BYO: sturdy closed-in shoes, clothing appropriate to getting dusty and for the weather, your drink bottle, hat. 

Students: time volunteered will count toward your developmental transcript (40 hours required over a 12 month period).

Staff: please clear your attendance with your manager, as appropriate, and come for as long or as little as you’re able- ALL help is appreciated!

Community: everyone welcome, but children must be over 4 years old and supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
