Opportunities to assist the MCCG

The MCCG is always looking for volunteers to help with the  many tasks we undertake to make a real difference to our local environment. Here are some examples:

Join a Bushcare group

These groups meet regularly to weed and replant mainly along our extensive creek network. Working with Habitat Brisbane, the groups have achieved considerable success in removing threatening weeds and replacing them with native plant species. These sites are being maintained and expanded. This is of great benefit to our local environment, but it requires an ongoing effort. If you are interested in helping your catchment, contact the nominated Section Leader from our list. There are also community led groups at Pacey Rd and along Upper Brookfield Road. 

Help our Creek Health Monitoring Program

This project began in 2011 to measure a variety of health indicators at several sites in the catchment.  It is critical that we know how our waterways shape up and how they are changing in response to land use and most importantly, how we can restore the system to normality. Adrian Webb is the project leader and our Landscape and Water Quality Adviser. Adrian's contact details are available by clicking here.

Committee positions

These are elected at the AGM in November each year. We welcome any enquiries if you have a desire to get more involved in helping to put our plans into action and to be a more effective catchment group. The current incumbents in the Chairperson and Secretary positions will not be standing for re-election at the next AGM so there will be an immediate opportunity for you to become involved if you are interested.  We know there is plenty of talent and expertise out there.
We welcome any assistance even if you can only help out on one or two days each year. 

For example, our annual Kid`s Day at the Cottage held in June each year is always in need of willing hands. Similarly, our displays at the Brookfield Show in May and the Photography Competition in October require the efforts of many people. 

If you are interested, please contact Warren Hoey on 3878 9123 or via email hoeywj@gmail.com 
or Cathie Mortimer on 3374 1418 or via email mccgsecretary@live.com.au
