Rubbish Collection and Weedbusting GroupsMonday 4th Feb
I am running this event on behalf of the Mt Gravatt Environment Group (MEG) https://www.facebook.com/megoutlook/. As we do each year, volunteers will be divided into two groups.
Group 1 : Pick up rubbish - collecting rubbish around the summit of the mountain, down the tracks, around the watertanks and along the road. For safety, those with children must stay up on the summit or on walking tracks.
Group 2 : Weedbusting - helping Mike Fox pull out weeds and other non native vegetation in one of MEG's working sites. The removal of weeds from the mountain is just as important as removing rubbish. This allows native vegetation to return and thrive, which in turn brings insects, birds and animals to this beautiful part of Brisbane.
Everyone will meet in the car park up the top of the mountain. We will divide into groups from there.
Please bring along a hat, water bottle, gloves, and remember to dress appropriately for the bush, ie sturdy closed in shoes, long sleeve shirt and long pants. Don't forget to apply your sunscreen / insect repellant.
Mike and I look forward to seeing you there.
