The Group meets on Saturdays (check with the organiser for dates) betwwen 9am and 11am.  Enter via the Plumer Street gate on Strickland Terrace, Sherwood, and look for a white four-wheel drive near the shelter shed which has the water tank, and is upstream from the entry gate.

Bring a hat, sunscreen, closed shoes, drinking water, hand tools and morning tea.  New volunteers are always welcome.

The Strickland park Bushcare Group has been working in the park since 1995.  We survived the 2011 and 2013 floods, and are currently working to reduce the quantity of weeds which have flourished since the wet weather.  The park was created in the early 1980s, after the devastating 1974 flood, and the 2011 flood was the first major test of the integrity of the park.

Save the trees from deer damage with knitted tree protectors !

 Feral deer often strip the bark off native trees in urban bushland and also off street trees around Brisbane. 

Jindalee Bushcare Group, which restores large areas of the Mount Ommaney Bushland Reserve, is putting
knitted protectors around trees whose trunks have been partially stripped by feeding deer. This is to
prevent further damage to the trees and to save them from being completely ringbarked which would kill
them. So far, this experiment has been successful!
There are so many affected trees, that the group would  appreciate some help in knitting the protectors.
Get out your yarn left over from knitting winter  and start knitting! Or you can crochet…
