Summary

This project involves rehabilitation of Brackish Lagoon and construction of Bird Hide and community access pathways to allow for effective community engagement activities and fauna surveys to take place on site. Key activities undertaken by the Green Army Team include bird hide construction, pathway construction, physical weed removal, revegetation, fencing, fauna and flora surveys, erosion control and interpretative signage.

Benefits

Water quality improvements into Moreton Bay Marine Park, RAMSAR Wetlands and Declared Fish Habitat areas in Pine River. Increase in biodiversity through weed reduction and introduction of native plant species through revegetation and regeneration. Improved habitat value for residential and migratory bird species. Increased opportunities for fauna and flora surveys.

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