Umina Community Dunecare Group

 

This volunteer Bushcare group meets at the eastern end of the Umina Beach Surf Lifesaving Club on the 4th Thursday of each month at 9.00 AM for three hours.

The team, established in June 2015, works under the supervision and guidance of the Central Coast Council Bushcare program.

Umina Beach Sand Dunes

Umina Sand Dunes from Mt Ettalong

The work is focused on the incipient dune and the foredune at Umina Beach to the east of the Ocean Beach Surf Lifesaving Club, which is in a very poor state due to weed infestation and the dumping of rubbish.

The aim of this group is to remove noxious weeds including Asparagus Fern, Bitou Bush, Turkey Rhubarb, and Lantana, clean up general rubbish in the area, and revegetation by planting local native species including Spinifex Grass, Pig Face, Coastal Wattles, and Coastal Tea Trees. As the work area expands we look forward to having new volunteers, who will be registered and subsequently trained through the Central Coast Council Bushcare program.
