Information session on foreshore
AS part of the revegetation of the Tweed River foreshore a community information session will be held tomorrow at Banora Point.
Tweed Shire Council waterways program leader Tom Alletson said the project would be spearheaded by the Bimbadeen Landcare group, based at Banora Point.
“This project is a great example of community and government working together and shows how much a small group of volunteers can achieve,” Mr Alletson said.
Bimbadeen Landcare co-ordinator Pam Southgate said motivation to restore the foreshore came from its obvious neglect.
“I’d like to thank Claire and Tom for their support and funding, which will leave us with the simpler task of maintaining the restored riverfront.”
Mr Alletson said keeping weeds out of foreshore vegetation was important, because the area supported native birds, butterflies, reptiles, mammals and fish.
The information session is at the foreshore of Bimbadeen Avenue tomorrow from 9am.
