Conservation work at Sandy Bay

This week the team has been cutting back scrub and bramble along the Gelvert Stream as it runs into Sandy Bay. The left bank has been left with cover.

Controlling scrub in this area will allow different types of plants to grow, and by letting light on the water, we can try and increase the diversity of aquatic plants in the stream.

Come Spring, we will see plenty of new growth.
