Conservation Week- 8th to 15th September 2013

September 8, 2013

lyall bay beach clean up! 003To do our part for Conservation week, some of the whanau organised to do a quick rubbish pick up at Lyall Bay beach.

A few years ago, I did this with my  St Catherine’s College Year 10 Science class as part of “Sea Week”, and the rubbish we found then (particularly plastic and polystyrene cups) was quite appalling.

This time, I’m glad  to say, it was really quite clean- which is  a tribute to the volunteer groups who have been dedicated to restoring the dunes and keeping the beach in good shape.

I’m a real supporter of council enabling communities to look after their own patch. A little bit of funding or other assistance from Council can go a long way when combined with community energy and skills
