FOSTER invites all in our community to join us for an informal beach clean up of the Seal Point Nature Reserve on Saturday at 10h00, meet at Johnsons Pool or the Lighthouse Car Parks. Due to the large waves of last week there is a large amount of plastic and other debris that has washed up on our beaches and coast line.

This is particularly noticeable in the Seal Point Nature Reserve and we have therefore decided to focus on the coast line of this reserve which extends from the Surfers car park to Sun set Rocks. As this is an informal clean up, we ask those volunteering their time to bring their own rubbish bags and gloves etc., our councilor, Lorraine will arrange for the collection of the bags after the event.

The weather may not be ideal as it was this past weekend but dressing up and braving the elements is all part of the fun of living in this beautiful and sometimes wild part of the world.

Should you prefer to rather clean up other parts of the coast line that will be equally appreciated. Shark Point and the Wild Side have not been spared from the plastic invasion!

The FOSTER team is also continuing with work in the Seal Point Reserve and the path from the surfers car park is being worked on. This includes improving the drainage and filling in the ruts and cutting back vegetation where required. The work at the lighthouse parking improving the flow and access to the paths is also nearly complete.

We hope to see you there.
