Monthly working bees on public waterways

Regular monthly working bees on public waterways are an integral activity of MCCG. They generally involve clearing of weeds, planting of native vegetation and maintenance of the replanted zones. Plants are supplied by Habitat Brisbane. Check with the nominated contact person to confirm the precise working bee site and the main activity. We are currently seeking Section Leaders for Pullenvale/Moons Lane, Gold Creek Reserve, Lower Gold Creek and Mt Coot-tha Park. If you are interested, contact Warren Hoey by email or phone 3878 9123.
