Summary

Lagoon and Tea Tree Creek has been invaded by weeds of national significance including Lantana and Fireweed. Weed control and revegetation works in the buffer areas will eliminate existing infestations and minimise likelihood of new weeds establishing. The area is part of the Waste Treatment Facility located in Caboolture and forms part of the Moreton Bay Regional Council lands. This Project also involves activities at Woorim Beach and Buckley’s Hole. Activities at these sites have been planned in collaboration with Friends of Woorim Beach and the Bribie Island Environmental Protection Association Inc.

Project activities undertaken by the Green Army Team to these Lagoon and Tea Tree Creek, Woorim Beach and Buckley's Hole include:
  • flora and fauna surveys
  • water quality testing
  • plant propagation
  • weed treatment
  • revegetation.

Benefits

Green Army employs young adults from 17-24 to gain practical training and experience in protecting the local environment.
