Recent working bee out on north arm of silt jetties – mainly for plant maintenance and rubbish collection. Good weather and comaraderie made for a great morning.
This is such a beautiful and usually (outside of duck shooting season) peaceful part of the Gippsland Lakes – a wonderful place in which to spend several hours working.
As usual, we collected several very large bags of rubbish including wads of fishing line, bait boxes, drink cans and bottles, food wrappers and a lot of toilet paper. Some disgusting piles of fresh human waste with toilet paper piled on top were discovered. Pity some of the people who use this area just rubbish it.
When we finished the area was almost pristine and the plantings look cared for.
