Why do we do this work?
Dunes planted in native plants help:
Plants and technical advice are supplied by Councils. Cooks Beachcare and the community supply the enthusiastic labour. And all work is done without significantly restricting views or beach access.
2020 PLANTING DAY UPDATE
As the Cooks Beachcare Group need to fulfill safety guidelines concerning Covid-19 there is no community planting day possible at present.
This winter we will be primarily assisting Councils work on the new dune at the eastern end of the beach near the 1769 Endeavour memorial.
Once this project is completed our Group may return to planting sites at the western end, dependent on plant supply.
Please watch for updates. We wish all our supporters the very best and look forward to seeing you again as we care for and improve our precious environment.
