Come join us as we conduct sand dune rehabilitation works at Congwong Beach. The area is a place of significance for traditional land owners the Gweagal and Kameygal with important cultural sites located within the park. A beautiful part of Botany Bay, favoured by scuba divers, snorkelers, families, travellers and residents alike. The focus of the Congwong Beach sand dunes restoration project is removal of Bitou bush from the dunes, to rehabilitate and re-establish the native vegetation.  Sand dunes are vital in protecting the coast line. Not only do they provide a suitable habitat to many species, they act as a buffer against significant weather events. Plants play a pivotal role in sand dunes. It is for this reason this project is so important. 

This will be the first day of the Sydney Airport Corporation's involvement with Congwong Beach. There will presentations from 11:00am to 12:00pm that the volunteers will need to be involved in.
