Dunecare

Dunecare volunteers work on our beach dunes to:

  • Plant suitable native shrubs and grasses to reduce erosion
  • Help control weeds
  • Remove rubbish
  • Enhance our beaches’ natural ecosystems.

The Dunecare program supports Council’s work to manage dunes and also helps our lifeguards and surf clubs.

If you sign up as a Dunecare volunteer, we’ll provide:

  • Free training and technical assistance
  • All the equipment you’ll need, such as plants, gloves, tools and personal safety gear
  • Removal of any rubbish you collect
  • Regular information and education such as workshops.

All you need is a couple of free hours a month to take part in this program.

Call us on (02) 4227 7111 to find our more or start volunteering.
