Working Bee 11 August 2018

WB08frontA forecast of rain, wind and hail did not deter the hardy band of 13 volunteers who fronted up to the WLSC carpark at 9am for a morning’s planting along Pea Creek in the Undertow Bay foreshore reserve. Luckily for us the rain eased to light showers as we headed off to the planting site.

Although the area was steep and slippery in parts, by noon we had successfully planted 450 indigenous tubestock. Thanks everyone for your stoic efforts and a special thanks to Leonie for navigating the slippery access track with the much appreciated morning refreshments.

    Our Hoodies

    Hooded PloversWe have two valuable Hooded Plover breeding sites at Undertow Bay and 2nd Surf Beach.  Hoodies are endangered species with breeding success currently very low.  To protect them you must:

      - Read and follow signage

      - Only observe them from a distance of 80-100m

      - Keep your dog on a lead and well away from the birds.
