Meet at the corner of Nathan Road and Wattle Street 4th Tuesday of each month
The Nathan Road Wetland Reserve is classed as a hotspot for birds in South East Queensland. To date 205 species of birds have been observed utilising the reserve, including waterbirds such as Latham's Snipe and the Painted Snipe. Yesterday REF and representatives from Healthy Land and Water, Moreton Bay Regional Council, Evolve and the Nathan Road Bushcare group completed a site inspection of the reserve. A fabulous area for wildlife and flora, there are concerns over the high infestation of the Broad-leaved Pepper Tree. The next step is to develop a plan to control this invasive weed, which excludes native plants and wildlife.
This Tuesday, Bushcare volunteers along with staff from the Moreton Bay Regional Council and Conservation Volunteers Australia conducted a planting session at Nathan Road Wetlands with Year 6 students from Mueller College. A great morning with the students asking some tough questions as they did their bit for the local environment.
