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 Gold Creek Reserve, Lower Gold Creek and Mt Coot-tha Park. If you are interested, contact Jim Pope by email or phone 3374 4181.

A message from Bryan:
This Sunday we will continue to work upstream from where we were working last working bee.  We were finding some significant invasions of Madeira vine and we need to control these before they take over! Park at the end of Pamela Place and we should be to your right (UBD Map 177, K6). Bring protective clothing (long-sleeved shirts, jeans, sensible shoes/boots), gloves, drinking water, hat and sunscreen. We'll bring the refreshments! Please come if you can - we need lots of help!

A message from Jim:

Our first working bee of 2019 would normally be the last Sunday in January, but I have another commitment on that date and it also corresponds with the Australia Day long week end, so many of you may be away. Consequently our first working bee of the year will be on Sunday 3rd February. Please make a note of this in your diaries. Weather permitting we hope to do a big planting – in the area of Tuckett Park that was recently opened up by removal of a number of large Chinese Elms. We will need as many as possible to attend since we are hoping to plant over 300 native trees and shrubs on the day!
