Group Coordinator: Dean Wyatt

In 2019, a new Ashgrove Sports Ground Habitat Group was formed led by Dean Wyatt.

The group works from the section of Enoggera Creek that runs along the back of Yoku Rd all the way downstream to Acacia Dr, and has been holding fornightly working bees on Sunday mornings.

Much of the land on the northernside of the creek is Army land which, environmentally, is in pretty good nick.


2005 saw a new group led by SOWN Nursery Manager Colleen Farrell take on a stretch of creek midway round the Ashgrove Sports Ground between the Bowls Club and Marist Brothers. Colleen’s site was a haven for Japanese Sunflower, Balloon Vine and Green Panic Grass.

Waterhousea floribunda by the waterside is a good sign.

Elephant’s ears (Colocasia esculenta – esculenta means edible) not so good, is also is doing fine along this bank. It will be a job for the waders.


One one side of the creek, at least, things are looking pretty good.
