We actively engage in coastal rehabilitation from the river mouth of Margaret River to Boodjidup Beach.
In our endeavour to increase the biodiversity of the coastal dune systems and to maintain the ecosystem, we focus on: brushing, planting, seed collection, weeding, track rationalising and community education. We focus our attention on each beach and their primary and secondary dunes, between the river mouth and Boodjidup.
We meet most Thursday mornings and work from 8am – 9:30am and then gather for a morning tea. We generally don’t work during the school holidays.

Barrett Street Reserve is an “A” class reserve (17.4 hectares) adjacent to rotary Park at the entrance to Margaret River township. The reserve is particularly notable for its beautiful stands of Karri. Due to its position between a road and the river and its proximity to town gardens, weeds are an issue and much of the work we do involves ongoing control of Asparagus Creeper (Asparagus scadens), Sweet Pittosporum (Pittosporum undulatum), Honeysuckle (Lonicera species) and Bleeding Heart (Homalanthus populifolius).
The reserve is well used by walkers and cyclists and new trails (both legal and illegal) have created areas that need replanting.
Working Bees are held regularly during the year, usually on Friday morning. We also hold the occasional bird/wildflower walk and possum (Western Ringtail) spotting and counting.

The Margaret River Region Enviro Centre’s (MRREC’s) bush site is bound by Clarke Road and the Wardandi Track on Railway Terrace in Margaret River.
We work on the regeneration of two small areas within the reserve. One is a small wetland that adjoins the Montessori School ponds. We hand weed, collect rubbish, collect seed, plant if any native plants are available and generally endeavour to keep the bush healthy.
We meet weekly on Wednesdays from 9am-12pm, with morning tea at 11am.

Friends of the Cape to Cape Track support and assist the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (Parks and Wildlife branch) in managing, maintaining and promoting the Cape to Cape Track, which runs for 130km between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.
We have an active volunteer Adoptees’ Program in which group members elect to look after small sections of the Track, monitoring, carrying out minor maintenance, removing obstacles and collecting rubbish. This work is generally done by the Adoptees independently, but when more serious pruning work or other maintenance needs doing, we organise busybees as required.
Parks and Wildlife staff take on any major maintenance or upgrading challenges.
We produce a quarterly newsletter, run monthly half-day walks and hold occasional events and workshops.
