Would the Awhitu Peninsula benefit from a beachcare group?
This is the question being raised and the Awhitu community are encouraged to join in the conversation.
Karen Opie, founder of the Port Waikato Beach Care group, is giving an illustrated talk on the successes their group has achieved.
Local resident, Anna McNaughton, advises, “The Port Waikato group connected with DOC, Council, local schools and Sea Scouts. They battled major coastal erosion, have disposed of accumulated rubbish, re-established dune plant communities and established protected nesting areas for the rare New Zealand and Banded dotterels.”
The talk will be held at 2pm at The Beach Club, 123 Big Bay Road on Sunday 24 September 2017 and all are welcome.
