Arakoon – Bitou Bush Program
Once a month during the cooler months – April to October inclusive, up to 16 volunteers stay in the historic Arakoon house (free accommodation), for up to a week. Arakoon House can accommodate up to 16 people in four self-contained apartments. Visitors usually settle in at Arakoon House on the Saturday, then join in the regular 3rd Sunday Meet, before continuing activities from Monday onwards. Weeds are removed by hand or cut and paint method, often following up primary control done by contractors. Much of our work is done along beach dunes, headlands or areas of littoral rainforest. We now have over 20 years experience and our control measures have proved to be effective. As well as the satisfaction of helping restore this wonderful coastline to a high level of resilience, we have some fun along the way. There is always time for a swim in the afternoon, reading, bird watching, walking and a BBQ or get-together in the evening.
