EVERYONE is invited to join in planting native trees and shrubs at Nuns’ Beach tomorrow, in an early celebration of World Environment Day.
It’s a chance to help beautify the iconic beach and improve the health of its dunes by building on the efforts of past years.
Portland’s Nuns’ Beach has long been a popular leisure location to enjoy a range of activities – from swimming and sand castle building through to picnics and fishing.
The event will be between 10am and midday tomorrow. All materials and a free light lunch will be provided for volunteers.
Organisations partnering the event include Pacific Hydro, Glenelg Shire Council, Portland Aluminium, Portland Sustainability Group, Seawinds Nursery, Portland Coastal Cliffs Inc, Bayview College, St John’s Lutheran School and the Portland Young Professionals Network.
Pacific Hydro’s Australian general manager, Lane Crockett, encouraged residents to get involved.
“Pacific Hydro is proud to be partnering with such a range of local organisations on this wonderful community event,” Mr Crockett said.
