Long Island Point team do some woody weeding in the community

In October, eight employees from Long Island Point participated in a Day of Caring volunteering event at Olivers Creek Reserve in Tyabb.
The team were joined by Regan from the Bushland Management Team of the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. The Council maintains the Olivers Creek Reserve, which is located on the outskirts of the Tyabb town, with the help of a volunteer committee of local residents.

Long Island Point Manager, David McCord was proud of his team’s volunteering efforts despite the hot weather on the day.

“It was a very hot day for woody weeding, but the team were committed to removing as much pittosporum as we could, in bushland that was extremely dense,” said David.

“Although the team was eager to get stuck in and get as much done as possible in the time available, we made sure we had our breaks, drank lots of water, were sun smart and looked after each other.”

The day was also supported by the Tyabb CFA, who provided amenities and a cool place for the team to sit and have lunch.
