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.

This Sunday we'll work on a Balloon Bine infestation about 100m downstream from Belford Street.  This is a little further downstream from where we were weeding on 9th December and within the forested area.  We made a big difference then, rescuing good plants from invasion by the weed Commelina benghalensis, and we were able to do some follow-up planting too.  Park near the end of Belford Street, turn left and you should soon find us! Bring protective clothing (long-sleeved shirts, jeans, sensible shoes/boots), gloves, drinking water, hat, sunscreen.  We'll bring refreshments.  Please come if you can!
