Belmont State Park- Sand Dune Stabilisation Workshop
Sat 6 May 2017, 09:00 – 13:00 AEST
Come and explore the sand dunes of Belmont Wetlands State Park (BWSP), plant a few plants, and learn how to plan for future sites based on the experiences of others.
Our leader for this workshop is Phil Heaton who has extensive experience in rehabilitating the dunes of Budgewoi on the Central Coast, as well as leading many other successful bush regeneration projects.
Belmont Wetlands State Park stretches 4.5 kms along the coast from Redhead to Belmont South. The 549 hectare site contains diverse ecology and large areas of unspoilt or only partly-damaged ecosystems recognised as regionally significant.
BWSP is run by a Trust who have already invested many hours of volunteer time into reclaiming and stabilising the degraded dune areas.
Join us for a great day out learning about and supporting this amazing natural area on your doorstep.
Please bring hat, sunscreen, wear closed shoes.
