Just in time for Christmas!


Conservation Volunteers Australia help to revegetate Enoggera Creek

Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) local and international volunteers braved the rain and humidity to give a much needed helping hand to local SOWN volunteers at Riaweena Street just days before Christmas. Over three days up to Christmas eve, the volunteers planted 900 native groundcovers and riparian trees along the bikepath and road adjacent to Enoggera Creek, extending the existing revegetation site. They worked through the rain to get the plants in and enjoyed a Christmas eve morning tea of cupcakes and sticky buns.

Riaweena St stretches from the corner of Payne Rd and School Rd to the back of the Gap High School and is one of the most well established of the SOWN sites, with some plantings going back to the mid 1980s.

Many thanks to the CVA Brisbane office staff and team leader Antony for providing the valuable volunteer labour to help with the revegetation of Enoggera Creek.

These volunteers from Conservation Volunteers Australia planted 900 trees just before Christmas 2010.
