Community input is being sought across the South Coast via a series of Southern Shoresworkshops to develop the document Southern Shores 2009.

 

You are invited to attend the Southern Shores Review and Celebration workshop meetings to celebrate achievements in coastal areas, prioritise strategic actions on what needs to be done, and identify any emerging issues and gaps.

At the June 2008 gathering in Bremer Bay, SCMG members met with the Friends of the Wellstead Estuary and had a look at their new trailer and visited the abalone farm.
