A Save Western Port Woodlands crew was on the road early on Boxing Day erecting signs along a 20 kilometre stretch of the Bass Highway.
The hand-painted signs were designed to alert the Melbourne cavalcade of travellers about our woodlands and the threat posed by sand mining.
They also indicated the position of sand mines, often hidden behind a thin strip of vegetation.
The signs clearly didn’t please everyone. By this morning they were all gone. Clearly our message has hit a nerve.
It’s not a disaster. We reached our target audience and we gained many new supporters.
Thanks to all those who helped out with sign-making and putting up the signs. A good time was had by all!
