Foreshore Program

8 May

The Foreshore Program is led by the Kingston Council Rangers. We are known as the ‘Foreshore Team’ and we go to Mentone Beach every second Thursday. During our time we have picked up lots of rubbish such as food wrappers, balloons and paper. It’s a very rewarding feeling, knowing you did something good for the environment.

We have also started planting Indigenous grasses and climbers. We planted these shrubs (shown) at a revegetation site to help restore the environment on Mentone’s Foreshore. We were split into two groups and planted over 150 plants. It was a fun challenge as some of us were located on a slope. It was really surprising seeing the before and after and how good it looked already. It’s very interesting when the rangers teach us about the conservation of Mentone Beach.
