For our next Combined Groups working bee on Thursday 1 September, Coolum and North Shore Coast Care will be assisting Sunshine Coast Council with weeding and planting out an area near the Elizabeth Street drain, where Council recently undertook vegetation management for flying fox control. Please meet at 14 Tradewinds Avenue Coolum Beach (near the Clayden Pottery workshop). The activity is from 8am to 11.30am. Morning tea and planting tools will be provided. Information about flying foxes, non-attractant vegetation, Council’s tracking project and flying fox management at this site will also be available. All welcome!

The next Management Committee meeting will also be held on Thursday 1 September, at Coolum Community Native Nursery, commencing 1.30pm. All members welcome.

 

If anyone has next Sunday morning free to spend on lovely First Bay beach just south of Coolum and Perry Point, Susan has organised a public beach cleanup to coincide with the regular marine debris monitoring her team does for Tangaroa Blue and UQ.

Sherida will be providing a turtle talk at 9am and Susan will provide info on marine debris. Please see the attached flyer. The activity will probably last a couple of hours, depending on how many people attend. Bags and gloves etc will be provided (but BYO morning tea, or head into Coolum for a coffee afterwards!)
