Volunteers at Werri Dunes

Werri Lagoon, an extensive lowland swamp and wetland has been highlighted as being of state environmental significance. A team of friendly volunteers carry out restoration work on the lagoon and dunes of Werri Beach. Basic coastal vegetation being planted and restored includes Banksia integrifolia, Leptospermum laevigatum, Westringia fruticosa, Correa alba, and Myoporum acuminatum. Weed species being tackled includes Morning Glory, Green Cestrum, Madeira Vine, Kikuyu, Glory Lily.

The group has most recently been successful in obtaining funding under the Caring for our Country Community Coastcare Grants, $45 245.45 in partnership with three neighbouring Landcare groups Bombo Headland Landcare, Gainsborough Chase Minnamurra River Wetland Landcare Group and Little Blow Hole Landcare Group to continue environmental repair work throughout the Kiama LGA and develop resources for the wider community to improve community capacity to carry out natural resource management projects.

Meeting Times

The Dunecare group meets on the first Saturday of the month at 9am and the site coordinator displays the group banner at the site selected to work on for the day. Conservation Volunteers Australia also run projects on the first Sauturday of the month to assist this local Care group in their efforts to restore the area.
