Community Coastal Grant Supports Dune Rehabilitation

The
City of Greater Geraldton with help from Batavia Coast Network, Planet Ark and
with funding from NACC NRM’s Coastal Community Grants has completed a Glenfield
Dune Resilience Project.

Local volunteers and
contractors came together to establish a sand trapping fence as well as laying
out wattle brushings to encourage shrub growth.

These nature based approaches will help to regenerate a fore dune, while creating a natural buffer for seasonal storms and, at the same time will trap seeds to encourage natural regeneration of the vegetation over time.

The works were completed between July and November last year with the help of the volunteers from Batavia Coast Network and support from Planet Ark through the project’s registration as a National Tree Day event.

This grant was awarded as part of Round 8 of NACC’s Community Coastal Grants. A number of other coastal activities were also funded in Round 8 including initiatives such as management of the Hill River Estuary and coastal revegetation at Wedge Island.

This event is proudly supported by NACC NRM. For more information visit www.nacc.com.au/project/small-coastal-grants-program/ or call 08 9938 0100.
