Working bees (monthly)
Currimundi Catchment Care Group hosts a monthly working bee on the second Saturday afternoon of the month. The location varies from month to month but may be any park or natural area within the Currimundi Catchment. The aim of the working bees is to remove invasive weed plants and unsuitable garden escapees from these areas and encourage natives to thrive in their place. We will sometimes plant natives in suitable areas as well. This in turn will provide food and shelter for native birds and wildlife. Details of each event will be added a week or so before each event on the Event listing on website Home Page. We can also add you to a working bee email list after your first visit to an event.
Bring: Gloves if you have them, and all the usual protection. Megan from Council will be in attendance with tools, gloves, weed knowledge and anything else needed.
Everyone is welcome to join us. The work will suit most peoples of all levels of fitness and age. Children must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. We have a mix of regulars and people who just turn up when they can. Please wear long sleeves and pants and closed-in shoes for your protection. We also recommend a hat and water bottle. Gloves and tools supplied.
The working bees are operated under the Sunshine Coast Council Bushcare volunteer conservation program. Before participating for the first time you will be required to register and complete a safety induction (both simple processes). Gloves and tools are provided. During the COVID-19 restrictions, you will be required to abide by social distancing rules at the event. There is also currently a maximum of 20 participants.
