WALGA hosted a field day in Perth's south eastern suburbs in August 2021, focusing on providing the practical, on-ground knowledge need for the conservation of natural areas. 

The field day covered eight different vegetation communities on the Swan Coastal Plain, moving from the Bassendean Dunes through to the Pinjarra Plain and the Foothills.   Sites included a large-scale banksia woodlands restoration project, Banksia woodland Threatened Ecological Communities, and a conservation category wetland. 

At each site, attendees learnt about the key characteristics of each vegetation community, the use of Bush Forever Reference Sites, and the restoration projects underway.  

Resources from the day can be found here: WALGA regularly hosts field days in various regions to cover a range of topics. Explore our past events or contact the  Environment Team for more information.
