Friends Stu and Enmoore had invited me to join them on a weeding weekend together with Jeff and other volunteers from the Willow Warriors. We were assisting the NPWS to try and remove weeds to make the Island more natural. We spent the whole weekend on the Island - camping overnight.

The regeneration of Goat Island is one of many ongoing projects of the Willow Warriors. If you want to help them - then get in touch via their website on the above link.
