Windbreak fencing at the Floreat dog-beach

We had a great turnout of volunteers on January 6, last Wednesday, to put up wind-break fences at the Floreat dog-beach – track CMB12 to be precise – between the ocean ends of Bent Street and Empire Avenue in City Beach. The forecast was for 40degrees C so we made an early start at 8am and got the job done by 10.30am but not before it got seriously warm! We erected 15 short fences and covered them with hessian cloth – see photos. Many thanks and let’s hope for lots of good strong sea breezes to pile up the sand between the fences to build up the dunes. We hope to be able to put matting down in the autumn and plant it in the winter.
