The residents of Corbie Street, Ashgrove have been working for 30 years to restore the creek corridor along Enoggera Creek and adjacent parkland. Work was started in the park in 1987 by Trevor Ozanne under the Enoggera Creek Association.
Site: Enoggera Creek on the north bank of the creek in Corbie Street Park extending to the bridge on Ashgrove Avenue.
The group have undertaken weeding, planting and mulching the riparian area. They have installed nest boxes to support local wildlife and are ensuring their plants are flood friendly.
The Corbie Street Group work the last Saturday of every month – from 3pm to 4pm in Winter and from 4pm to 5pm in summer. Happy to have new helpers.

(b) Establishing through new plantings the connectivity of the vegetation corridor along Enoggera Creek. This will facilitate the interaction of the squirrel glider populations within Corbie Street park and those in the creek corridor.
(c) Placement of habitat boxes within the park through government, corporate, resident and local business funding.
(d) Promote the awareness of what fauna is present in the park and encouraging people to keep their dogs on the lead and cats at home at night.
(e) Encouraging intervention on the south side of Enoggera creek to at least cut the base of all the vines that are slowly killing the established trees downstream of the Ashgrove Avenue bridge.
