Mangroves and Mud in Moreton Bay. Past, Present, and is there a Future?
Guest speakers Ralph Dowling and Dr Arnon Accad will discuss the mangroves of Moreton Bay and their distribution within Moreton Bay. The talk will cover the history of the formation of Moreton Bay and the effects of humans on the bay. They will also discuss long term monitoring studies which are undertaken of mangroves and associated saltmarsh and clay pan communities within Moreton Bay and also speak about changes to the mangroves along the Brisbane River and in particular along our local reach.  More information can be found on this flyer.


National Tree Day - Saturday, 29 July 2017

Cubberla Witton Catchments Network is hosting a National Tree Day tree planting activity at St Lucia Golf Course Handel Street Indooroopilly. 
This location is important because it is part of a natural vegetation corridor and, an "of concern" regional ecosystem. We are aiming to remove noxious weeds and then regenerate the area and increase biodiversity and habitat to create a corridor to the Brisbane River. 
Join with the St Lucia Golf Course Bushcare Group and concerned students from the University of Queensland to replant close to a hectare of native vegetation. Register your interest on the Planet Ark National Tree Day website
