As a local community group, our committee also benefited from the experience of sponsoring such a significant project and the great work ethic and passion of so many of our team is to be acknowledged. Apart from the eco-path project, we were also able to engage the community through various events and projects and hopefully raised the profile of our remaining wetlands associated with the Redcliffe Peninsula, Hays Inlet and Moreton Bay.
This blog has covered a number of activities during the year and it’s well worth taking the time to scroll back through the articles and images to see and reflect upon the great work carried out by our members and partners including our patron Councillor Koliana Winchester; the team at the Moreton Bay Regional Council; the Federal member for Petrie, Luke Howarth who has provided us with guidance and support in securing Green Army Projects which can make a real difference to rehabilitating and protecting our valuable wetland habitats.
Along the way we have created significant partnerships with other like-minded organisations including Health Waterways, South East Queensland Catchments, Wetland Care Australia, Conservation Volunteers Australia, the Pine Rivers Catchment Association and local community organisations including the Friends of the Redcliffe Botanical Gardens, the Hays Inlet Festival Organisational Committee, Sunfish, Redcliffe Rotary, the Redcliffe Rugby Union Club and the Redcliffe Golf Club.
This year promises to be an even more exciting year with a number of projects including the Hays Inlet Bushcare Project set up to run during the year. With the help of our members, sponsors and partners we can make a real difference to our local habitats, wildlife and fisheries. As the year unfolds we will endeavour to keep our members informed through this blog. Please feel free to comment on articles as they appear and if you have any questions we will do our best to get back to you with some answers, especially around the flora and fauna associated with Hays Inlet.
