Sizzling success

Not much beats the smell of sausages cooking on a BBQ, which is why NACC’s Coastal and Marine team could not resist.

Volunteers from NACC’s Beach Photo-Monitoring Program and the Shire of Irwin’s Tidy Towns Sustainable Committee were treated to a lovely lunch on the Port Denison Foreshore recently.

The special lunch was organised by the NACC team to celebrate the start of a successful and fruitful 2016, and to acknowledge all of the hard work that NACC’s volunteers have within the Shire of Irwin throughout the past year.

Some of our volunteers in the Dongara/Port Denison area have been helped NACC monitor beaches in the Northern Agricultural Region from the beginning, and their passion and consistency has never faltered.

NACC Coastal and Marine Project Officer Felicity Beswick said it was community passion that has helped drive the project, and make it the success it is today.

“It is always good fun to take the time out of our busy schedules to catch up with like-minded people who share our same passion for the environment,”she said.

“It was also great to hear about the changes the volunteers have witnessed throughout the past year and to discuss their ideas for any new opportunities that may be available for the town in the future.

“We all look forward to a wonderful 2016 and the opportunity to collaborate on some great natural resource management outcomes for the region throughout this upcoming year.”
