Sorrento Beach Dune Rehabilitation

“Friends of Sorrento Beach” (FoSB), a sub-group of the “Joondalup Community Coast Care Forum, Inc”, is conducting a multi-year coastal ecosystem restoration project in Sorrento and Marmion, now stretching over 2km of coastal reserves. This event will focus on planting out about 1km of primary dunes with 1,200 Spinifex longifolius seedlings, to infill previous plantings. Our planting methods and aftercare ensure very high survival rates. We will finish the day off by showing participants some of the excellent outcomes that have been achieved to date.
