Restoring Moonee Beach headland
UNDER the care of a dedicated group of volunteers, professional bush regenerators and some dollars thrown in by NSW Environmental Trust, Green Bluff will once again live up to its name.
Green Bluff is the name of the headland at Moonee Beach and it features a remnant littoral rainforest, kangaroo grassland and a rich aboriginal history as the place where the land and the sea were made by two sisters, stone axes were made and meetings held because of plentiful food from the ocean and estuary.
The work here is preserving these special plant communities and protecting them from being overrun by exotic grasses and invasive weeds.
To find out what difference this work will make on the local animal populations, extensive bird monitoring is carried out to compare bird use of the areas before and after restoration work.
Local volunteers are needed for bird monitoring and hands-on weed work. Interested in taking part? Contact Coffs Harbour Landcare office for details 6651 1308.
