Trinity triumphs!

It had been noticed by members of CCA that some of the plants around Dutch Inn groyne were looking a little sad and in need of some TLC…fortunately, we had been contacted by a group of students from Trinity College (University of Western Australia) who were keen to get involved in a worthwhile community activity – and what better opportunity than some much-needed coast caring!

It’s always great to have groups like this come along to lend a hand (many hands, actually!) – the amount of work that can get done in a relatively short time is fantastic. The students were really interested and keen to help, and hopefully they all learnt a little about the importance of native coastal vegetation. We can hope some of them were so inspired they may head off to study courses that will result in better science and management of our natural areas…or at least come back to coast care another day!

Thanks so much to the students of Trinity (and we hope you enjoyed the swim afterwards) also to Sue, Frauke and Petra (Town of Cottesloe’s Sustainability Officer) for coming along to help out, as well as Ken from the depot for turning up with the water truck – all the plants received a good drink and hopefully as a result will live on through the long hot summer!
