Local Environmental Groups Conduct Clean Up Across The Gap Ward Parks

Though composed of only a handful of people, a small group of locals from bush care groups across The Gap have been conducting clean-ups of parks across the ward, taking care of the beautiful greenery and the creek for the community.

Nicholas Park Gap Central Bushcare Group

In mid-January 2023, the amazing crew from the Nicholas Park Gap Central Bushcare Group woke up early to replant and regenerate the greenery on Riaweena St, Gymea St and Tandara St. The plants have been growing in perfect condition, especially with some light rains and moisture in the night.

The group finished off their work with morning tea and are eager to see more hands joining them for their next tasks. Follow the group on Facebook for updates.

Corbie Street Bushcare Group

The Corbie Street Bushcare Group worked on weeding out Singapore Daisy and other vines or weeds across the riparian zone on the Enoggera Creek in late January. They conduct clearing activities at least once a month and would also love more volunteers to join their activities for conserving nature. Those interested may email corbieparkbcg@gmail.com for more information.

Men of the Trees Queensland 

This environmental group worked on Keryn Place Park in Keppera by planting and propagating Ludwigia Octovalvis plants. In December 2022, Men of the Trees Queensland also weeded out Singapore Daisy around this bushland before it grows lush and cover drains, irrigation and footpaths along the creek. Learn more about this group by following their Facebook page or emailing info@mottqld.com.au.
