When does Bushcare meet?

working-bee-March

Everyone is welcome to join with Dawn Road Reserve Bushcare group members on our next working bee on Sunday, April 9, 2017, by turning up at the end of McConachie Court, Albany Creek, for an 8am start.

DATE CLAIMER: COME ALONG ON THE SECOND SUNDAY OF THE MONTH FOR JUST TWO HOURS AND JOIN IN THE FUN, LEARN MORE ABOUT THE DAWN ROAD RESERVE AND DISCOVER FASCINATING THINGS ABOUT YOUR ENVIRONMENT.

This is a free activity and the revegetation work is helping to prevent invasive weed species taking over a waterway’s recently cleared riparian zone and from spreading into nearby yards. Read all about the progress so far on this project in 2015 and 2016.

Remember to at least wear long trousers, a long-sleeved shirt, sturdy, closed shoes and to bring a hat. Thanks to Moreton Bay Regional Council sponsorship, insect repellent, sunscreen, drinking and hand-washing water and light refreshments will be available to volunteers at no cost.

Newcomers will receive a full safety briefing from MBRC Bushcare officers and you can buddy up with long-term volunteers in a range of interesting and often fun activities. Help us make a difference to your backyard.

NB: We announce the date, time and place of each month’s Dawn Road Reserve Bushcare get-together within a week or two of each working bee.
