“We also rely heavily on support and guidance from Northern Beaches Council,” he said.
Greater Sydney Land Services officer, Rebecca Mooy said “ the volunteer effort at the Reserve is obvious when you walk the path from the new stair way. “ Coastal Rosemary, Wattles, and Lomandra planted by the volunteers to increase the shrub layer are a big change from the weedy understory of Asparagus Fern and other weeds that had invaded coastal bushland,” she said. Northern Beaches Council General Manager Environment and Infrastructure Ben Taylor said the iconic beach, within the Manly – Freshwater World Surfing Reserve, is a highly valued part of the northern beaches coastline and is a focus for council’s volunteers who also stabilised the sand dunes to reduce the impact of coastal erosion.
“A mountain of invasive weeds has been removed, native plantings re-introduced and the general environment of this much-loved location greatly improved for everyone to enjoy,” he said.
