Rainforest grows on sand at a few places on Magnetic Island. Come to a free field trip on Saturday afternoon 5th May to find out about the restoration of a small patch at Arcadia.
Community group Geoffrey Bay Coastcare have been working with approval from Council and funding from Australian Government and NQ Dry Tropics to remove weeds from Geoffrey Bay Scrub behind the Bright Avenue shops.
This rare vegetation type is protected by the Australian Government. The field trip will feature guest speakers explaining why beach rainforest is special, where else it grows on the island, and how to identify and treat environmental weeds.
Everyone’s invited. It’s outdoors so please bring sun protection and water. We’ll only be walking 100 metres so its suitable for all ages. It will only take an hour. Please bring a folding chair if you’d like to sit.
When: Saturday, 5th May at 2pm for one hour.
Where: Public laneway behind the Bright Avenue shops, Arcadia.
