We're on a mission to control pine wildings in the gorgeous Discovery Bay Coastal Park. Pine Wildings are pine species including Radiata Pines that have escaped form plantations in the area and may have been distributed by birds or other vectors such as wind. These populations need to be kept under control to protect the amazing coastal habitat that is present here. The pine wildings have the potential to change the structure of the local vegetation communities by out competing the local species. With the loss of these native plants so is the loss of key potential homes Keep and eye out for emus, kangaroos, wallabies, reptiles and coastal bird species.
This project requires volunteers to hike uneven terrain for around half an hour into and out of the site. You will require a good level of fitness to participate in this project.
