Scouts care for the bush

COFFS Harbour Scouts went green at a recent tree-planting day.

The members of the Coffs Harbour Scouts Troop helped plant 400 trees on Moonee Headland, in a bid to repair the area that was devastated by a fire believed to be deliberately lit.

The troops then helped clear rubbish, weeds, and continue with plant regeneration at Woolgoolga Backbeach.

The scouts were joined by Damian Lett from the National Parks and Wildlife Service and scout leader Graeme Lambert, who talked to the scouts about the coastal landscape, erosion, native plants and safety in the bush.

Landcare volunteer Maureen Joyce said the scouts were well behaved and worked well with the Landcare volunteers.

“It is encouraging to see these young people actively helping the local community and caring for our coastal environment,” she said.
