A working bee Saturday, 15 March 2008

Walton Bridge Reserve

These photos by Mark Crocker document a typical working bee. On this Saturday we worked on Fish Creek just upstream from the junction of Fish and Enoggera creeks. We had help from a visiting family, and two students from Hillbrook doing community service, part of their school program.
