Main Beach looking good

Posted on: 4 June 2020

Our local Cliffs group have had an enforced break from its Purge the Spurge campaign over the past few months due to the Covid 19 Pandemic. Despite this the main beach is looking great. Undoubtedly as a result of the great work that was carried out in March prior to the pandemic.

The group utilized the services of the Conservation Volunteers Australia to implement the following outcomes over the past few months

  • removed thousand’s of Sea spurge plants (5 garbage bags and two wool press bags). Weeded drain area.
  • sprayed large area of sea spurge at Nuns Beach, with fantastic results. Three more days scheduled, with CVA recommencing works after COVID19 shut down.

Group President Debbie Oakley has kept incredible busy over the past few months, applying for several grants that will continue to deliver great outcomes for our main beach. If you are interested in getting involved with their new projects: Coca Cola Foundation / Landcare Australia Grant then reach out.

The group have also applied for funding through the DWELP Coastcare Grants program. This project will see more shade trees planted at the beach. The plan is to provide a small amount of habitat on the beach for the smaller birds who are currently living in the weeds on the cliffs. As the weeeds are removed new homes will be required for them.

The group is registered with Centrelink for Volunteer hours. PCCI can arrange projects for volunteers wishing to do hours.
