Coastal camping with a twist of lime

Staff from the Coastal and Marine section of the Environment Division as well as Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) took advantage of the great beach weather last weekend during a two-day workshop for Coastcare volunteers and stakeholders at Lime Bay State Reserve on the Tasman Peninsula.

The workshop was organised by the Southern Coastcare Association of Tasmania (SCAT) as a part of an Envirofund project to fence off remnant vegetation and a midden site at the popular reserve.

"The event was a chance for Coast carers from Southern Tasmania to come together, share stories, meet experts, other stakeholders and have fun while helping protect a fantastic part of the coast," Coastal and Marine project officer Kristy Blackburn said.

Kristy was able to answer queries on such topics as the State Coastal Policy and the new Caring for our Country NRM delivery program.

PWS staff also played a vital role with help erecting the marquees as well as a fantastic animal identification and egg (rock) painting workshop by Discovery Ranger Angie Anderson.
