Volunteer by planting, mulching, brush matting or helping to distribute morning tea and a hot lunch: what's your preference?
Quiksilver is a local corporation that has a strong interest in conserving the environment; and this will be the third year that the Quiksilver Foundation has sponsored Torquay Landcare Group’s (TLG) regeneration work. This year, TLG has invited Anglesea Coast Action (ACA) to join us, along with the 20-40 Quiksilver staff who also volunteer their labour for the day.
The site for 2010 is the Anglesea dunes off the main surf beach, so if you want to lend a hand and be part of the fun of the day, please ring TLG President on 03 5261 6609. Tasks such as serving lunch and morning tea require volunteers, so even if you aren’t quite up to planting on the sand dunes, there will still be other jobs to do that need your help.
TLG provides a hot meal for all volunteers on the day too, thanks to the assistance of ‘Frenchy’s on the Esplanade’ and Anglesea Surf Lifesaving Club. Intricate negotiations, including onsite meetings have been conducted with the Department of Sustainability & Environment (DSE) & Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (GORCC). Geoff Clark of Otways Indigenous Nursery is propagating Moonah and Moonah understory plants for planting on the day.
Meeting point is at the bottom of the steps that go over the dune of the main surf beach, Anglesea. Take a look at the map below.
