There was a huge turn out for today's Clean Up Australia Day event at Queensport Rocks Park, Murarrie. It is wonderful to see so many faces today pulling together to achieve a fantastic result. But we weren't just taking things away, the event also included putting in trees! Thank you all for your great efforts today, especially the hardworking Belmont Scouts. And thank you also to our special guests and joint coordinators Healthy Waterway's CEO Julie McLellan, Queensland's Minister for Environment and Heritage Protection and Minister for National Parks and the Great Barrier Reef Steven Miles, State MP Di Farmer, Queensland Urban Utilities CEO Louise Dudley, and SEQ Catchment's CEO Simon Warner. This event was part of Brisbane Catchment Network's Brisbane River Corridor project and was supported through funding from the Bulimba Creek Envirofund and Councillor Ryan Murphy.

February's 'Open Day at the Sustainability' was the first for 2015 and kicked off to a great start with guest presenter ecologist Adrian Caneris talking on wetlands to an enthusiastic crowd of almost 50 guests. Adrian spoke on different wetland types, their importance, and the numerous and varied species which rely upon them. The feedback from the day was resoundingly positive and everyone was enthralled with Adrian's knowledge and passion. Thank you again Adrian for your time today. We all look forward to having you back again in the future.

About 20 volunteers assisted at the first planting for the Cabbage Tree Creek Restoration Project. Northern Catchments Network (NCN) had worked for over two years to secure funding from Transport Main Roads for the project. The site at Neeara Street, Deagon is the first of eight sites where work will occur over the next couple of years. Geoff Redman, NCN president, was on hand to see the culmination of his efforts, with over 300 native species established. The volunteers were mostly local residents who are pleased to see the habitat creation project improved the parkland near the Gateway Motorway. Bulimba Creek catchment will continue to maintain the site, and do weed controls and revegetation at the other sites in the coming months.
