On Saturday 14th March, 2015, B4C on behalf of Brisbane Catchments Networks organized two workshops at B4C Sustainability Centre. The two workshops were held by Laura and Kevin Noble, who are the coordinators of the Common Myna Control Program of Clarence Valley Conservation in Action (CVCIA).


In the first workshop, the 29 participants learnt about Common Myna birds:


- How to identify a Common Myna.

- Common Myna behaviour and impacts in other birds.

- How to prevent the population from increasing.

- Population controls and principles of cage capture and management.

- Parts of a cage and its importance.


During the second workshop, 15 participants learnt how to build a trapping cage step by step from scratch.


These workshops were funded by Brisbane City Council Environmental Grant 2013-2014.

A first for B4C - teaming up with Carindale Connect to present a fantastic art exhibition with works inspired by nature at our Sustainability Centre on 7th March, 2015. Works from over 40 artists were on display on the night and the event was officially opened by Di Farmer, MP for Bulimba. The event was a huge success with around 200 people coming through on the night, not counting the people who came in earlier in the day and on the Sunday. Congratulations to all those people that purchased an original work of art from local artists. Your purchase is a boost to the artists and an encouragement for them to continue their wonderful work. A great boost to the creative and talented people in our community.


The exhibiting artists were: Wendy Allen Georgia Ardouin Dave Behrens Nicole Blackie Glenn Brady Sarah Bryant Lisa Bundesen Renata Buziak Jet Carroll Michael Cawdrey Dominique Chen Wendy Clark Carmel Cochrane Karen Collins Bonnie Connolly Julie Deeks Anne Demene Marcel Desbiens Denise Douglas Rosie Harvest Claudia Husband Yolonde Ironstone Georgia Joubert Erin Kennedy Gary Kesby (GaZ) Alinta Krauth Martine Lloyd Penny Lonie Kevin Masters Abby McCahery Jennifer McIntosh Jane Milburn Jemica Ostrofski Caroline Penny Lindy Perrins Laura Phillips Elzunia Rejmer Lyn Sanderson Daniel Scott Aaron Scholz Brock Templemen Jocelyn Thompson Robyn Vanholland Elizabeth Wallace Leigh Wagner Lee Wilkes

A big thanks to Gen Robey from Carindale Connect for the tremendous job of organising the wonderful art show. And thank you also to the unsung heroes - the volunteers working in the Sustainability Centre who cleaned up a roughshod building, repainted and made it into an art gallery in super quick time. Leigh, Brock, Rob and the team, thanks for the hard yards and the quality workmanship. Acknowledgement should also be given to Melissa (SEQ Catchments and bushcarer) who spent hours creating some beautiful edible art with handcrafted critter cupcakes for the event which were a huge hit!
