Sand Dune stabilization .....
I'm sure this is a sight that is familiar to most people who live along the coastline in countries like the United States, Canada and New Zealand. This restoration of the beaches along the coast started a few years ago and is part of a five year plan by West Coastcare and supported by The City of Stirling. The planting is carried out by volunteers, community and school groups, who work alongside Coastcare, City staff and qualified contractors to plant the many species of indigenous plants to rehabilitate and restore the environmental resilience of this stretch of popular coastline. A combination of careful planting and jute matting to keep the weeds under control, will hopefully see a return of the many types of birds and other species of creatures that make the sand dunes their home. I hope the first Monday of 2012 is a good one for you.....!
