Peak Planting Provides Boost for Point Moore

Peak Consultants’ staff plant native coastal trees along Greys Beach, funded as part of a Friends of Point Moore Inc. Coastwest grant.

Hats off to local staff from Geraldton electrical engineering company Peak Consultants Pty Ltd who recently took time out of their busy schedules to plant native seedlings and trees at Point Moore to help revegetate vulnerable dunes along one of Geraldton’s most popular beaches.

Seedlings for the ‘business planting’ event were funded via NACC’s Elevate Your Impact project which supports local businesses to undertake on-ground environmental activities in conjunction with local community groups. Peak Consultants teamed up with Friends of Point Moore Inc. to revegetate coastal dunes to help stabilise the soil, act as a buffer against wind and water erosion, restore habitat, and visually enhance the area. Seedlings were funded via Elevate Your Impact, while the trees were provided through the Coastwest-funded Point Moore Dune Re-establishment Project.

NACC Coastal & Marine Officer Vanessa McGuiness demonstrates best practice planting techniques.

“In just a couple of hours the Peak team made a huge impact” said NACC NRM Project Manager Sarah Samulkiewicz-Taylor.

“It is impressive to see what a relatively small group of eager volunteers can achieve in a short time. Their contribution has given the Friends of Point Moore and the local environment an important boost whilst also being a fun and fulfilling activity for Peak staff.”

Businesses in the NACC NRM region who would like to get involved in environmental activities similar to this are encouraged to contact Sarah Samulkiewicz-Taylor at NACC via email, or mobile 0408 891 502.

This project is supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program, supported by Royalties for Regions.
