Working together to restore Enoggera Creek at Pender Street


Like most bushcare sites, the floods badly impacted Pender Street in The Gap, eroding creek banks and taking out some recent planting work.

In an all day planting event on 13 April, Healthy Land and Water organised the planting of hundreds of plants and installation of bank stabilisation measures.

This was a joint project with Health Land and Water, Brisbane City Council, Oxley Creek Catchment Group, Wirrinyah First Nations Conservation Services and SOWN.

SOWN President Renee McGlashan said it was great to see so many people in and out throughout the day.

“It will be an exciting site to see evolve and grow over time,” she said.

Thanks to our Brisbane City Council officers Brendan McIntyre and Jodi Rees for coming out to support this event. Also a big thanks to the Nicholas Park bushcare group led by Janet Mangan for coming out and changing your site for the morning. Thank you Healthy Land and Water for supporting this site.
