Group convenor: Janet Mangan

This Habitat Brisbane Group was restarted in 2019 under the leadership of Janet Mangan. The group meets every second Wednesday morning from 7.30 – 9.30 am.

With help from Brisbane City Council, the group tackled a heavy infestation of Cat’s Claw behind Payne Road State School and is tackling other weeds to preserve the remaining indigenous vegetation and encourage its regeneration.

For more information and dates for working bees phone Janet Mangan on 0499 814 030.

The group operated previously from 2007 convened by Lyn Martinez. Based around Nicholas Park, the group rehabilited a section of riparian or riverbank vegetation along a stretch of Enoggera Creek behind The Gap State High School.

This site features good remnant dry rainforest, in particular an enormous Hard Quandong (Elaeocarpus obovatus), and other creek species including Weeping Lilli Pilli, Black Bean, Green Kamala, Native Grape vine, Stephania, Smilax, Jagera, Guioa and Australian Ebony.
