A community dune care group was established in late 2009 after interest was expressed by the Labrador Residents Action Group. Since then and with the support from Cr Margaret Grummitt various other local community groups have participated to encourage community involvement and increase awareness of the importance of dunes and dune vegetation. Community planting and weeding activities facilitated by BeachCare take place on the third Saturday of every second month.
Marine Parade, Labrador (Harley Park just north of Charis Seafood)
Description of area:
The site is located along Marine Parade adjacent to Harley Park, just north of Charis Seafood in Labrador. The dune is fringed with Casuarinas and carpeted with low-lying native dune runners like Beach Bean and Beach Spinifex. This dune suffers significantly from invasive weeds such as Siratro and is unfortunately also subjected to litter.
To improve the health and biodiversity assets of the foreshores, as well as engage community members to take action and care for the local area.
