Woodside Works

On Thursday 15th of October a really enthusiastic group of staff from Woodside joined us for some weeding down at Mudurup Rocks. Woodside have been a fantastic supporter of the Coastcare program over the last few years and have contributed a valuable amount of staff volunteer hours – so we are always really glad to have them along!

This group was indeed keen, ready to go at 8.30am and determined to clear a huge area of pelargonium and other weeds before the morning was out! Fortunately the weather was perfect and along with a few dedicated CCA members (thanks to Frauke, Jan and Yvonne!) the Woodside crew worked tirelessly to clear over 45 full bags of weeds from this fragile site, which is to see a significant amount of infill planting next winter.

By 12.30 the volunteers were ready for a well deserved break and retired to the Civic Centre grounds for a BBQ. Thanks so much to Angela for initiating this day and her team for an awesome effort – we hope you enjoyed the BBQ and please feel free to come back anytime!
