Students join Clean4Shore monitoring survey

Students from Erina High School's Ontrack group joined Clean4Shore at Patonga for a monitoring survey on Thursday, March 23.

"The task was to complete a survey and remove any visible litter from Patonga Beach to Little Wobby," said co-ordinator Mr Graham Johnston.

"Our first stop was the small inlet called Smugglers Cove, which required a quick leap off the barge onto the rocky foreshore where we found large pieces of treated pine, plastic buckets and the remains of a double bed.

"Two more stops before Juno Point with more pine and hard plastics loaded between the surging tide.

"There was calmer water on the western side of Juno Point with the barge cruising very close to the rocks.

"A car tyre, more pine, plastics and polystyrene were removed.

"Spring Beach had an old rusty bike and half a bag of small litter mostly beer bottles left by recreational campers.

"A large fibreglass drum and a 20 litre plastic drum was retrieved from Croppy Beach, with the students venturing into the cave to continue the adventure.

"Little Wobby jetty had old discarded chairs and two bags of small litter with some collected flood debris removed close to the jetty.

"A submerged pontoon will be revisited on a lower tide.

"A good load was returned to Patonga with the rain staying away and 280 kilos delivered to Woy Woy tip.
