Last week saw a massive community effort to improve safety and access to Lake Dunstan for the 12th Annual lakeside clean-up. On Wednesday, 40 students from Cromwell Primary helped to collect rubbish and weeds from along Alpha Street with the generous help of staff, parents and Robin Dicey. Then on Saturday, over 80 people came together to remove over 17 trailers of rubbish and weeds from between Richards Beach to McNulty Inlet. All in just 3 hours!
The trust wants to thank all the amazing community groups and individuals who donated their time to give back to their local community and environment. By removing hazardous waste and invasive willows and lupins, we can ensure access to the shoreline for recreation and wildlife is safe and maintained. We also want to thank the Presbyterian church for holding their own clean up on Saturday and the Cromwell new commers group on Wednesday.
Please join us again in 3 weeks when we will be planting 10,000 trees & shrubs in McNulty Inlet as part of our Jobs for Nature bridge to Bridge project. From 10am on Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th October, Lake Dunstan will be transformed with your help. Located near the Aquatic Centre in McNulty Inlet, bring along gloves and we will do the rest. Amazing food and information provided. For more information, check out our Facebook or website, www.lakedunstan.org.
