Tread lightly on cape

‘Tread Lightly’ is the name of a new project set up by Cape Byron Trust in conjunction with the NSW Government Environmental Trust and they are inviting the community to learn about sustainability.


Cape Byron Trust chairperson Yvonne Stewart said everyone could make a difference when making choices that were sustainable in day-to-day activities.


“The project provides people with the opportunity to learn about sustainability while taking a scenic walk from Cape Byron Lighthouse to The Pass,” she said.


“Seven new information signs are located on a one-and-a-half kilometre section of Cape Byron walking track.”


The trusts are launching the new initiative next Thursday, June 10, at Cape Byron Lighthouse at 10.30am and would like to invite the community to participate.


“Staff will be available to guide visitors on the Tread Lightly walk,” Ms Stewart said.


“The project aims to show how we can live in a sustainable way and feel good about our contribution.”
