Over three days in October about 30 staff from Alcoa joined Munda Biddi Trail Maintenance Volunteers to clear, prune and restore various sections of the Munda Biddi Trail.
The Willodale team, led by Mine Manager Trevor Stockil, cleared a section of the trail in the Lane Poole Reserve area with experienced Munda Biddi Trail Foundation volunteer Stewart Parkinson who coordinated the event for the second year running.
“The Munda Biddi Trail is an important recreation activity nearby to our Willowdale Mine operations and we have proudly supported the trail since 2000”, said Trevor. “In addition to our sponsorship, it’s great to be able to roll up our sleeves and help out in this practical way,” he added.
Munda Biddi volunteers Richard and Bernadette Brooke-Smith coordinated the other two maintenance days with the teams from the Wagerup and Pinjarra Refineries. The Wagerup team cleared some badly overgrown vegetation around the Logue Brook Dam area and the Pinjarra crew assisted with some much needed grading work of the Trail in steep sections near the North Dandalup Dam.
The Munda Biddi Trail Foundation’s Volunteer Coordinator Carina McMillen said “the Foundation is so grateful for the long standing partnership with Alcoa and it’s great to have the support from the Alcoa staff who chose to contribute their volunteer hours to work on the Trail. It was great to see some of the Alcoa staff returning for a second or third time to work on the Trail”.
The Foundation relies solely on volunteers to maintain the Trail. If you would like to sign up as a Trail Maintenance Volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
