Habitat Creation Event at Mookinbah Reserve
This event will establish 380 native plants to improve habitat and food sources for wildlife at Mookinbah Reserve. Volunteers will also be able to remove weeds from adjoining bushland areas and check out the nest boxes, which promises to be an interesting morning all round.
This event is for all community members as well as KPMG volunteers, and is supported by B4C and Brisbane City Council. Join us on Friday 20th October from 9am to 1pm for this fantastic nature caring event!
A small group of keen bushcarers and conservationists enjoyed an interesting talk from environmental scientist and PhD research Anne Cleary. She took us through research showing the incredible range of benefits that being in nature can deliver for people. These include lower stress, lower blood pressure, and a whole range of other benefits for both physical and mental health. What was particularly interesting is that research is showing that being active in looking after nature is even better! So bushcarers get twice the benefits 🙂
As well as this excellent and informative talk, attendees were also treated to some delicious food and great company. We look forward to our next social night and guest speaker in 2018 and thank Anne for delivering this wonderful talk for us.
Just a quick note to let you know that Harman’s Reserve bushcare will be held on the 4th Sunday of the October (22nd) rather than the third. Things will be back to normal in November when the crew meet on each 3rd Sunday from 7.30am to 10.30am as usual.
Did you know that Greencamp Road will soon have a dedicated fauna crossing? As part of the Green Camp Road upgrade project this corridor will be installed, along with wildlife awareness zones. Bayside Creeks Catchment Group are very excited to have this installed in the area along with the many other improvements the upgrade will bring:
providing a minimum of two through lanes in each direction on Green Camp Road from Manly Road to approximately 180 metres past the Rickertt Road intersection
providing three through lanes on the Green Camp Road northbound lane adjacent to the Tilley Road intersection
signalising the Green Camp Road and Tilley Road intersection including widening the Tilley Road approach to provide one left-turn lane and one right-turn lane
providing two through lanes on Rickertt Road in each direction for 200 metres from the Green Camp Road intersection
widening the Rickertt Road approach to provide a separate left-turn lane and two right-turn lanes
raising the road level and upgrading the existing culverts under the Green Camp Road and Tilley Road intersection to improve drainage and flood immunity to a 1% annual exceedance probability (1 in 100 year probability of a flood occurrence)
providing on-road cycle lanes
providing fauna crossing facilities and wildlife awareness zones
