A young koala's beach adventure

Locals plant again with help from TCC

Following repeated willful destruction of foreshore native plantings, Townsville City Council and members of Geoffrey Bay Coast Care joined forces last weekend at Geoffrey Bay with a replanting of trees which were first planted in 2003 but have been vandalised since 2009.

The trees, located near the northern end of the foreshore, have now been accompanied by a new sign which indicates that the vegetation “has been illegally damaged” and reminds prospective vandals that the “Native coastal vegetation plays an important role in minimizing erosion and aiding beach recovery,”

Council’s Integrated Sustainability Services Department provided the replacement vegetation.

Any locals who witness vandalism of the vegetation on the foreshores can contact Council on 1300 878 001.

Syl Hayes In reply to Fair raises $15,000 for school
What a wonderful outcome for the school! I had a great time face-painting with Luke and Sasha, met lots of kids and parents,scored some great books at the Trash n Treasure stall, and even remembered to vote. Everywhere you looked people were enjoying themselves...such a tribute to the organisers. Well done!
