The City hosts a number of sustainability and conservation programs for the community throughout the year. You can get involved with local conservation groups and programs and meet like-minded people in your community.
Sustainability is as much about community as it is about the environment. The City runs a number of programs and events throughout the year, to help you connect to your community for sustainability.
The City publishes a biannual Sustainable Living Events Series, which is packed full of fun community events suitable for young and old. Each edition includes over 50 events and workshops to inspire sustainable living in your home. Most events are free or heavily subsidised.
To discover what's on offer each month please visit the Events and Workshop webpage or download the Sustainable Living Events Series (see related documents) below.
The City hosts a number of free community planting days at conservation reserves throughout the year. Join us for a fun filled morning improving habitat values within conservation reserves. Go to Events and Workshops for more information on planting dates and locations.
Get Planting Cockburn
In 2018 The City of Cockburn received funding for $100,000 worth of native trees to be planted in Cockburn over the next three years.
Community members will have the chance to plant an additional 4,000 trees in the Cockburn landscape, over and above the 10ha already earmarked for planting by the City until 2020.
The 'Get Planting Cockburn' project was made possible with a grant from the Local Projects, Local Jobs
fund administered by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.
Go to Events and Workshops
for more information on planting dates and locations.
The City supports a number of ‘Friends of’ groups, community volunteers who look after natural areas in the City. Visit the Cockburn Wetlands Education Centre for information on their group and how to get involved.
