Come along for a herbicide free experience.

It is a great feeling to remove the Bitou from the front dunes uncovering treasures like Knotted Club Rush (Ficinia nodosa), a sedge that grows naturally in Australian dune environments. So this coming Saturday, the 27th of September, Byron Shire Chemical Free Landcare will be in at Brunswick Heads Crown Land Reserve, lopping Bitou Bush on the front dunes, from 9 am till 1:30 pm. Meet at the fire track gate at the end of South Beach Road near the surf club. If you come later, walk along the dog walking track to the beach, head South for 50 m and you will spot us. We are on to the last leg of primary work. Looking great. Thanks to all our volunteers. New volunteers are welcome. We have 15 pairs of loppers, so if you have some spare time and want to learn how to restore the dunes using our chemical-free strategy please come and join us.

Please wear boots, a long-sleeve shirt and long pants, a hat, gloves and bring water, a picnic and beach gear. More information please phone 0478272300 or email or go to
