Welcome to our News  page. The  resources below show some of what we do on Contarf Hill and some of our recent projects.

In June 2022, we planted 2,000 seedlings where we had removed the

Brazilian pepper trees (woody weeds).

In February 2022, we removed a large section of woody weeds

(Brazilian Peppers).

During the extremely hot summer of 2021/22 we watered the seedlings that were planted in June 2021.

In 2021,we installed a new bench at the top of the hill so that visitors can stay awhile and enjoy the fantastic view.

In November 2021 our Community Stewardship Grant application through the State National Resource Management (NRM) was successful. This application was considered by the assessment panel as a good, solid NRM project. The feedback from the assessment panel was that the funding request was reasonable and good value for money and that there was a clear need and rationale for linkages between the coast and Beeliar wetlands. They also recognised that the project for weedy weed control is a genuine community driven project, which shows that FoCH have collaborated with all relevant stakeholders and also demonstrates good co-contributions from the City of Fremantle. We are working with the South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare (SERCUL) and the Cockburn Community Wildlife Corridor (CCWC) to implement the project.

This is a photo of Schinus terebinthifolia (Brazilian Pepper tree) as this is the main woody weed the project is targeting.
In 2016 Dr. Noel Nannup visited the site to talk with with CVA volunteers
In 2015, we installed 4 bird boxes for our resident bird population.

We acknowledge and pay respect to the Whadjuk Noongar elders past, present and emerging whose land was never ceded.
