Group convenor: Athol Brown Enoggera Creek flows from the Enoggera Reservoir which was built in the 1860s and increased in height after the 1974 floods. The first (uppermost) SOWN site on the creek is Yoorala Street West.

In early 2016, SOWN began working with SEQ Water and Brisbane City Council to restore a large area north west of the original Yoorala Street West plantings and towards the Enoggera Dam.

The photo shows volunteers planting around 500 native trees and shrubs at the first SOWN community planting on 9 April 2016. Athol and volunteers at community planting April 2016
