Come join us on working on the some beautiful landscapes in the Discovery Bay Coastal Park.
The Discovery Bay region is Victoria’s marine gateway to the Great Australian Bight and the immense expanse of the Southern Ocean. Geologically the area is basalt overlain by limestone and encompasses rugged coastal cliffs and headlands of Cape Nelson and Cape Bridgewater, huge rolling sand dunes and freshwater lakes and swamps further inland. With a rich diversity of coastal flora and fauna, we are hoping to protect this beautiful environment, focusing on controlling some new and emerging invasive weed species. Come along to learn how to ID native and pest plants, gain skills in pest management and spend some time with like-minded people.
Projects run on Tuesdays and Thursdays and transport is provided from Portland. Alternatively some projects run from Monday to Friday with transport provided from Warrnambool and overnight accomodation in local Holiday cabins. Check conservationvolunteers.com.au for dates and to register.
