Welcome to Stirling Natural Environment Coastcare INC.
Stirling Natural Environment Coastcare is a group of volunteers working to rehabilitate the coastline of Hamersley Beach, North Beach, Trigg and Watermans in the Perth metropolitan area. Our area of interest extends across City of Stirling's 6-1/2 km of coastal foreshore.
The enthusiasm of Stirling Natural Environment Coastcare is well recognised within the community. Strong partnerships have been established with the City of Stirling, Woodside, Conservation Volunteers Australia, RecFishWest, local school groups and universities.
The season of birth.
During the Kambarang season, we see an abundance of colours and flowers exploding all around us. The yellows of many of the Acacias continue to abound, along with some of the Banksias and many other smaller delicate flowering plants including the Kangaroo Paw and Orchids. Also during this time the Balgas will also start to flower, especially if they've been burnt in the past year or closely shaved.
One of the most striking displays of flowers to be seen during this season will be the "Mooja", or Australian Christmas Tree (Nuytsia). The bright orang/yellow flowers serve to signal the heat is on its way.
For the animals, October is also the most likely time of the year that you'll encounter a snake as the reptiles start to awaken from their hibernation and look to make the most of the warm to assist them in getting enough energy to look for food. It's also a time that many young families of birds will be singing out for their parents to feed them. Koolbardies (Magpies) will also be out protecting their nests and their babies.
Many things are undergoing transformation with the warm change in the weather.
Longer dry periods accompany a definite warming trend.
Work sessions are every Tuesday and Thursday from 8am-10am.
