John Curtin Weekend - John Curtin Weekend Avon Valley 2022

The Avon Valley Environmental Society (AVES) is a volunteer and membership based organisation located in Northam just over an hour from Perth. They aim to improve the local environment and protect it from any threats. Their intent is to educate our communities of the importance of the environment and show them better ways live and work in a sustainable way. A group of 10 volunteers will work together to help AVES perform rehabilitative work on bush tracks near the Avon and Mortlock rivers in Northam that have been damaged in the recent floods.


Volunteer duties may include (please note that some duties may change as the weekend draws nearer and it becomes more clear to our community partners where volunteer support would be most valuable):

  • Repair and rehabilitation of walking tracks
  • River maintenance alongside the Avon and Mortlock rivers
  • Clearing rubbish,
  • Planting native trees and shrubs, and
  • Other duties as required.
