Are you looking for a rewarding day out? Conservation Volunteers Australia have the thing for you!
Hay Point Foreshore is a stretch of quiet, sandy beach and luxuriant vegetation overlooking the turquoise waters of the Coral Sea. It is also a critically-endangered ‘beach scrub’ habitat, a remnant of vine forests on coastal sands which once stretched all along the Mackay region’s coastline. Home to many native plants, butterflies, birds and reptiles, it has suffered badly from past clearing and invasion by exotic species and needs some tender care to restore it to its former glory.
Activities include maintaining existing plants, removing invasive weeds and flora surveys.
We are looking for people passionate about making a difference in the environment and able to lend a hand as we rehabilitate this beautiful area. Activities include planting native plants propagated in the nearby school nursery, maintaining existing plantings and of course some hard yakka handweeding!
Hope to see you there!
