Coast care – film Wed 17 Jun

June 4, 2009

duneLocal volunteers continue to try and rebuild the dunes north of the wharf. Over the past year, we have learned more about coastal care from a number of meetings, talks & workshops coordinated by the Hutt City. The left photo shows the encouraging results from planting sessions last year.

A coast care meeting will be held at Muritai school library on June the 17th at 7.30pm. The meeting will include a short film by Quinnovic about dune restoration called “Every Grain of Sand”, a talk by Dave Olson an MSc student on his study of the Eastbourne gravel pulse, hopefully a discussion of Jim Dahm’s report on the Eastbourne coast – if a draft has been completed, and discussion regarding local coastal issues and events.
