Community members are encouraged to help protect the region's shoreline by volunteering their time at Bundaberg Regional Council’s dune care events.
Native vegetation is important for dune stability and buffers the effects of coastal hazards such as cyclones.
It also provides habitat for native animals and supports the region’s biodiversity.
The next dune care event will take place at Elliott Heads on Saturday 3 June from 8 am – 10 am and participants will work to reduce the threat of invasive weeds.
No experience is necessary and no pre-registration is required.
Children are welcome however they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Participants are encouraged to wear enclosed shoes, long pants, a long-sleeve shirt, hat and sunscreen.
Some gardening gloves and water will be available at the event. A meet point will be set up in the park behind the Elliott Heads community hall.
