A FoGL working bee on the north arm of silt jetties in 2016 for plant maintenance and rubbish collection. Good weather and comaraderie made for a great morning.
This is such a beautiful and peaceful part of the Gippsland Lakes – a wonderful place in which to spend several hours working.
FoGL volunteers 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.
When we finished the area was almost pristine and the plantings look cared for.
