In partnership with the Wooroloo Community Team, Parky Care is supporting a range of initiatives aimed at building community resilience following the February 2021 and January 2022 bushfires. The primary focus, in conjunction with the Shire of Mundaring, City of Swan and Australian Resilience Corps is the implementation of best practice bushfire preparedness.
The project focuses on a range of bushfire preparedness initiatives on both public reserves and private land.
Wooroloo is surrounded by significant tracts of public reserve, including the Heritage Trail or Kep Track, Needham Reserve and Bailup Park Reserve, the latter two managed by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.
Parky Care coordinates a Friends of Heritage Trail Reserve along the six Kilometre stretch of reserve running along the southern edge of the township from Old Northern Road in the west to Allen Street in the east. If you would like to join the Friends of Heritage Trail Reserve group, click the Volunteer Now button below and sign up.
The WCT has instigated a trial in conjunction with the Shire of Mundaring to allow groups of residents to collectively reduce verge fuel loads in a safe and controlled manner using a combination of planned burns and non-burn treatments, such as slashing and herbicide applications.
If you would like to participate in such a trial, get in contact with the WCT using the form at the bottom of the page.
A WCT project led by Wooroloo Bush Fire Brigade Captain, Lesley Lynam, this initiative provides an instructional workshop with supporting DFES information booklets for residents on how to best prepare their properties for the bushfire season.
The WCT and Parky Care have partnered with the Australian Resilience Corps (www.resiliencecorps.org.au/our-volunteer-partners) to harness the skills and passion of corporate volunteers from across Perth. Working with and through the ARC’s existing volunteer partners, their aim is to create a culture focused on building resilience. By bringing together corporates, volunteer partners and community members, the WCT and ARC will be able to reduce the impact of bushfire disasters right across Wooroloo.
