Heather Woods and her family, again hosted our annual Clean Up Australia event.

Twenty-nine community members, including Cr Krista Adams and Corrine McMillan MP collected seventeen bags of rubbish: drink bottles, McDonalds’ bags and car parts.

Heather organised us into three teams:

  • Summit Team – families cleaning up the Summit;
  • Eloise

    Guide Eliose on the job

    Road Team collecting rubbish from Mt Gravatt Outlook Drive; and

  • Weeding Team – Lantana busting at the 2017 National Tree Day site.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Griffith Mates team joined the Weeding Team clearing a large area of Creeping Lantana Lantana montevidensis as well as weed grasses along the road verge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was able to show the Weeding Team members the natural regeneration of native plants where the Creeping Lantana was removed as part of National Tree Day.

Bell Flower vine is a delicate scrambler spreading in the cleared area.
