CCA’s mountain goat challenge

Casual Cottesloe beachwalkers would have been bemused at the somewhat ungainly rear views they may have seen on the 18 June, our second planting day at the Bryan Way project: it was a real challenge to dig holes, plant the seedlings and somehow manage to keep the water buckets upright on the hard and rocky, steep slope! Some of us wished for more youthful agility and more obedient leg muscles – however, our small group of indefatigable mountain goats succeeded in planting some 200 new seedlings, including those lovely sedges you see at the top of the photo.

As always at our beautiful worksites, the ocean lay shimmering beneath us and an elegant white yacht added to our aesthetic pleasures.
