In-situ restoration management and environmental strategies in conservation

Increase environmental literacy and civic interest through action-based inquiry in the largest urban remnant bushland on the Swan Coastal Plain.

Collect quantitative phenological data to track climate change and become custodians for environmental change.

Learn how to clean, dry and store seeds for future propagation and discuss current technologies in seed conservation, seed dormancy and seed banking.

Consider how endemic plants respond to fire, and using scientific principles, design an experiment to investigate the role of smoke water in plant establishment in the Banksia woodland.
