Revegetation Project: Queensland Climate Week 2019 Revegetation Project

Climate Week - Tin Can Bay Foreshore Public Weeding and Re-vegetation event was conducted on Thursday, 6 June 2019 from  in Bob Reibel Park, Tin Can Bay. 

 The 'Weed Warriors' team from Cooloola Coastcare held a public information and re-vegetation event in the Tin Can Bay foreshore park. The public was able to grab acuppa and a cake and a shovel and plant native plants in the areas cleared of weeds over the past months by the Cooloola Coastcare 'Weed Warriors'. People were able to  get information about the local plants and weeds by taking home a 'Great Sandy Beauties and Beasties' booklet and a 'Cooloola Cove Wetlands and Waterways' book. 


They were planting native plants recommended by the Coastal Manager from the Gympie Regional Council's Environment Department. Plants were purchased from the local Cooloola City Farm Native Plant Nursery to ensure they are local species. Information about local native plants was available in a marquee.
