CCA/SLSWA/DHL team effort

Cottesloe Coastcare / SLSWA / DHL Working bee

As part of a national Surf Lifesaving ‘Volunteer Day’ initiative, representatives from Surf Lifesaving WA and staff from DHL (major sponsors of SLSWA) partnered with Cottesloe Coastcare Association on Wednesday the 2nd of September to carry out some weeding at Grant Marine Park.

The group proved themselves to be dedicated coast carers, with a fantastic level of enthusiasm despite impending rain. We managed to clear a huge pile of weed species from the park, with some particular care going into the newly planted site where weeds had been threatening to take over some of the seedlings.

After a morning tea visit from the coffee van (what a treat!) everyone got back to work and by lunchtime could be really proud of the achievement and difference we had made to the site.

Many thanks to all the Cottesloe Coastcare volunteers who turned up on the day to help; to the DHL crew who were a really keen and friendly group to work with; and to Scott and Maclain from SLSWA for facilitating the day.

(thanks also to Kate Sputore, the North Metro Coastcare Officer, for organising the day & sending this item for our blog)
