Spraying has been in place on our precious coast, in many parks for well over 10 years! There has been little adequate monitoring and certainly none in terms of our coastal aquatic systems and fauna. Enough is enough.
Hi and Happy New Year to all Byron Shire Chemical Free Landcare volunteers and welcome to our first working bee of the year, on Saturday the 31st of January, at Brunswick Heads Crown Land Reserve, from 8 am till 12 noon. Meet at the fire track gate at the end of South Beach Road near the Surf Club at 8 am. We have tools and new volunteers are welcome. If you come later walk along the beach front, heading South, 100 m and look for us in the duneS.\
Get ACTIVE; STAND UP AND TELL COUNCIL and Other bureaucrats that HERBICIDE USE IS KILLING WHAT WE CANNOT SEE AND is part OF all life. Volunteer for herbicide-free efforts.
The year ahead is another great opportunity for us to work together caring for country, sustainable development, and developing community and knowledge of our land. We will start the year by sweeping through the site following up Bitou Bush seedlings and Glory Lily. This exercise gives as the opportunity to revisit or meet new native seedlings that we are sure (with this wonderful rain) will be in abundance through the site. Some of these seedlings, that popped up in 2010 when we started to remove the Bitou Bush, are already trees!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or go to http://www.byronshirechemicalfreelandcare.org
