Bundaberg Region residents are being encouraged to get digging in the dunes of Elliott Heads to assist with weed removal and tree planting.
Dune vegetation is important to the coastal ecology and provides habitat for animals and native tree species.
The event will be hosted by Bundaberg Regional Council in March for residents to participate in and will involve removing weeds and planting new trees to help with the current revegetation program at Elliott Heads.
