    In Safe Hands: Ensuring Safe Working Practices

    9:00 am-1:00 pm
    04-05-2019

    Registrations are now open for the In Safe Hands: Ensuring Safe Working Practices workshop to held at Piney Lakes Environmental Education Centre from 9.00am -1.00pm on Saturday May 4th 2019

    This workshop is part of a Myer Foundation funded Community Capacity Building project being run by the Cities of Canning, Fremantle, Melville and the Town of East Fremantle.

    Attendance is free and catering will be provided.

    This workshop is ideally suited to coordinators of community garden groups and “Friends” groups, or those who are on the management committee of these groups.

    Volunteer community groups contribute enormously to protecting and rehabilitating our bushland, wetlands, waterways and coast and add tremendous richness to our community.  Most who volunteer in this sector relish the opportunity to be immersed in nature and to participate in the weeding and planting activities commonly undertaken by these groups.  However, volunteer community groups and the state and local governments on whose land these groups generally work, each have an obligation to ensure that the volunteers can enjoy working in the environment and in each other’s company, while remaining safe.  They have a “duty of care”.

    This half-day In Safe Hands workshop is designed to help environmentally focussed volunteer community groups understand what obligations both they and the land owners have in keeping their volunteers safe and provides simple tools to identify and address potential risks to safety and how to respond in the event of an incident.  It will provide practical information on how to provide a safe working environment for your volunteer group members, while also ensuring that those coordinating volunteer groups are protected from potential litigation.

    Conservation Volunteers Australia has delivered over 400 In Safe Hands workshops in Australasia, helping over 4000 environmental community groups to improve their safety practices.  The In Safe Hands workshops are designed by educational experts to be engaging and enjoyable. Participants in the workshop have a ‘hands on’ experience on what it means to use the In Safe Hands Toolkit and conduct a practical risk assessment.

    Each group that attends will receive an In Safe Hands Toolkit to use as a resource for future group activities.

    Registration commences at 8.30am.  Tea and coffee will be available from 8.30am.

    Seminar program commences at 9.00am sharp and concludes at 1.00pm

    Parking:  The driveway to the Piney Lakes Environmental Education Centre exits Leach Highway between Murdoch Drive and Riseley Street.  Only vehicles travelling west on Leach Hwy can enter the driveway (a traffic island prevents access by vehicles heading east). There is plenty of free parking available at the venue.

    Attendance is by invitation only and a maximum of 2 members per group are invited to register.  This seminar is limited to a maximum of 25 participants.  People must be registered to attend.

    Samson Park Community Planting Day

    8:45 am-12:30 pm
    18-05-2019

    Join the Friends of Samson Park and the City of Fremantle for our community planting day

    Date: Saturday 18 May
    Time: 8.45 am (for 9.00 am start) -12.30 pm. BBQ lunch provided
    Location: Sir Frederick Samson Park, off McCombe Ave

    We are planting a range of local native species to in-fill an area adjacent to the turfed parkland. The area was previously accessible from the parkland, it is now enclosed by bushland fencing and the reintroduction of lower story native species will enhance the biodiversity of the park.

    This year the City intends to plant around 3000 plants in our revegetation program with the support of the Friends of Samson Park and Conservation Volunteers Australia.

    We will also be discussing how the Friends of Samson Park can get more involved with Samson Park. If you would like to get more involved in learning about and conserving the native flora and fauna of the reserve we’d love you to join us.

    This activity is supported by the South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare (SERCUL) through the community capacity building for ‘Friends of’ groups project coordinated by the South West Group NRM partnership arrangement and funded by the Sidney Myer Foundation.

    What to bring

    • Wear closed-in shoes
    • Hat
    • Water bottle
    • Raincoat (if it may rain)
    • Favorite gloves if preferred

    We provide

    • Gloves
    • Trowels
    • Plants
    • BBQ lunch

    All ages welcome.

    No need to register, just turn up and sign the volunteer register. More info here

    UBC Heritage Festival Event

    9:00 am-11:30 am
    18-05-2019

    Black-cockatoos and Banksias

    As part of the National Trust’s Australian Heritage Festival the Urban Bushland Council will be emphasizing the need to conserve our precious natural heritage through an event at Bold Park called Black-cockatoos and Banksias.

    The event will take place on Saturday May 18th, between 9.30am and 11.30am at the Western Australian Ecology Centre at Bold Park.

    The event will commence with presentations from William Fowler (Murdoch University) and Christine Groom (UWA) on current research into these bushland jewels – sharing information on their nature and interdependence, the fragility of their numbers and extent, and community efforts to conserve them into the future.

    Guided by the Friends of Bold Park we will then take a walk through Bold Park – one of the largest remaining bushland remnants in the urban area of the Swan Coastal Plain – to explore the importance of this world-class urban wilderness to black-cockatoos and banksias.

    As places are limited, please register your attendance through the Events Page on our website: http://www.bushlandperth.org.au
