Esperance Weeds Action Group have called on all users of West Beach to assist in a ‘Pulling the Pink’ weeding session this Sunday, October 14.

The session, supported by the Shire of Esperance, will be held from 2pm until 3:30pm at the First Beach car park on Albany Street and has been called to target the pink daisy.

The Action Group said the effort was designed to supplement attempts in previous years to remove the pink daisy and current works to revegetate and rehabilitate areas on the escarpment that have been degraded.

Participants will be provided with some trowels, spare gloves and bags to dispose of weeds but regular gardeners are encouraged to bring their own weeding tools.

The community-based action group formed back in 1998 in a bid to raise awareness of the impact of weeds on the coastal town.
