Ray White Real Estate helps our Shoalhaven River
In September 2017, Ray White Real Estate staff from 6 offices volunteered their time to plant mangroves on the foreshore of Comerong Island.
The staff members planted 180 mangroves donated by Shoalhaven Riverwatch, and erected a fence to protect the mangroves from being covered with ribbon grass while they are establishing.
Ray White Real Estate are setting a challenge to other local businesses who might like to get involved in caring for our local river.
