On 11th March the Friends of Samphire Cove Nature Reserve hosted an informal celebration of Paver Art recently installed in the reserve. Designed and produced by the Bush Ranger Cadet students at John Tonkin College, the Paver Art is part of our project to introduce the paths of an All Abilities Interpretative Trail, to include signs highlighting the reserve’s features.
The event also celebrated the links between The Friends, the College Students and their Teachers; exemplified by the three different Bush Ranger groups who separately made and donated eight Microbat boxes made under supervision of wildlife conservationist Joe Tonga (aka Batman) who took an active part in the Paver Art and also the Samphire Cove revegetation.
The Friends wish to thank the college students and their teachers Barbara Sing, Jane Kennedy and Kim Davies for their support and enthusiasm for these projects. We also thank Bunnings Halls Head for providing the pavers, paint and some very expert advice.
Samphire Cove is a unique nature reserve on the corner of Wedgetail Retreat and Egret Point Road in Halls Head. It is managed by Parks & Wildlife Service, Mandurah. Click on the photos below to enlarge:
