Working Bee 11 November 2017


1711homeThe last working bee for 2017 was spent removing Sea Spurge regrowth from the sand dunes at Harmers Haven. We started searching for Sea Spurge seedlings near the Coal Creek footbridge and worked our way eastward for the duration of the working bee.

We were delighted at how little regrowth we found in this area as it was quite thick with sea spurge a few years ago when we commenced the eradication project. The weeds were more prevalent as we progressed eastward but by the end of the working bee we had completed the section of beach our fearless leader, Rod had marked out for us. It was a great morning’s work in perfect beach conditions.
