Students do bit for environment
STUDENTS from Toormina High School joined Jetty Dunecare co-ordinator, Desnee McCosker, to help with the environmental restoration of the dunes behind the northern end of Boambee Beach.
The students were able to help plant more than 120 coastal wattles and banksias which will help protect the dunes against erosion as well as provide habitat and food for many native animals. Desnee also helped with identification of weed species such as bitou bush and gloriosa lily which are being removed as part of the tree-planting project.
This is a beautiful piece of bushland that is home to the magnificent rainbow bee-eater and it deserves to be preserved. The students would like to thank Desnee for the opportunity to help in this project.
