A reminder that, as part of Sunshine Coast Council’s ‘clean up for the hatchlings’ initiative, Coolum and North Shore Coast Care is hosting a beach cleanup and tree planting at North Marcoola tomorrow Saturday 6 February, at Beach Access 105 (200 metres south of the Marcoola Surf Lifesaving Club and across the road from the cafes). All welcome.

The activity commences at 6.15am with a cleanup along the beach and dunes, so that turtle hatchlings will not be impeded by debris and plastic as they make their way to the ocean. After an hour on the beach, we will be planting on the dunes, to ensure their health and stability.

The activity will conclude with a sausage sizzle in the park opposite the cafes, at 8.15.
