Celebrate with us the successful rehabilitation and installation of nest boxes - Saturday, 8th May 2021 - 9:30am-11:00am
Greenhill Reservoir rehabilitation has been going from success to success. Australia Government's Communities Environment Grant has now added to the progress by funding the installation of nest boxes, needed because tree hollows are missing in an otherwise established bushland remnant. Brisbane City Council supplemented the funding for more nest boxes including one for a barn owl hopefully taking up residence and tackling domestic rat populations rather than the neighbourhood relying on rat poison. Check out the interesting program for our celebratory morning here and join us on the day!
CWCN Book Club - Program 2021
The CWCN Book Club began in 2014. We are thrilled about its success. Regular participants tend to look forward to the third Wednesday of each month (except December). While COVID 19 had brought some interruptions and ZOOM sessions, we are back with physical meetings, albeit following social distancing rules and other regulations. Our much loved session at the Centre are back showing the same energy and lively discussions as before. Find inspiration by checking the titles in our web diary and flyer.
Seed Propagation at CWCN
Our CWCN nursery is a busy and social hub. There is plenty to do from collecting seeds and setting them up for germination, from pricking out to potting on, from watering to general maintenance. There are training opportunities and fun-filled working bees. Of course, we follow our COVID Plan to keep everyone safe. our nusery work is volunteering at its best. Results of the work have been planted at many of our local rehabilitation sites. As you can see by the image of Pararistolochia praevenosa vines we are an important part of CWCN's Bringing Back the Richmond Birdwing Butterfly to Brisbane's Inner West, a project made possible through Queensland Government's Community Sustainability Action Grant for threatened species. We raise the vines from seeds to ensure best success and required numbers. - If you have questions or would like to be involved please ring or text Henry on 0430 628 325.
The Great Outdoors in Brisbane's Inner West
Although being outdoors and volunteering are beneficial to your health, in times of a pandemic our volunteers require protection and are at the forefront of all considerations. All previously cancelled bushcare activities have now resumed with social distancing and hygene measures. Nothing beats working in the outdoors. Our weeds will continue to grow, and our wildlife movement corridors will need further repair to enhance our biodiversity. Although we look forward to pandemic free times, participation is now again possible. Check out our page 'Get involved' and consider where in future you may want to help us restore our natural assets. Till then, stay healthy!
