Mirani, Mar 19th and 2 other dates
Wetlands are vital to the Great Barrier Reef. They reduce the impacts of floods, absorb pollutants and provide habitat for animals and plants.
Wetlands are important in other ways as well. They purify water and form nurseries for fish and other freshwater and marine life. Because of this, they are important to Australia's commercial and recreational fishing industries as well.
Conservation Volunteers Australia planted native trees at the iconic Demoleyns Lagoon, a beautiful freshwater lagoon situated approximately 40minutes from Mackay, in between Mirani and Marian in the picturesque Pioneer Valley on World Water Day and now they need maintaining.
Additionally, we are collecting some baseline information of the state of the lagoon to compare future images to.
Activities include photography, mapping with a GIS unit, watering, hand weeding and other activities to help the new trees grow.
Join us today to contribute towards restoring an endangered wetland that provides important habitat refuge for wildlife in a predominantly agricultural area!

Next we will be planting the trees, shrubs, and creepers that attract butterflies. Finally we will be visiting the site over the course of several months to check on it and maintain it.
Come and join us to learn about which native plants attract butterflies, which plants are considered weeds, and all the skills you need to build your very own butterfly garden!

Hay Point, Mar 29th and 6 other dates
Are you looking for a rewarding day out? Conservation Volunteers Australia have the thing for you!
Hay Point Foreshore is a stretch of quiet, sandy beach and luxuriant vegetation overlooking the turquoise waters of the Coral Sea. It is also a critically-endangered “beach scrub” habitat, a remnant of vine forests on coastal sands which once stretched all along the Mackay region’s coastline. Home to many native plants, butterflies, birds and reptiles, it has suffered badly from past clearing and invasion by exotic species and is in need of some tender care to restore it to its former glory.
Conservation Volunteers Australia are looking for people passionate about making a difference in the environment and able to lend a hand as we rehabilate this beautiful area. Activities include planting native plants propogated in the nearby school nursery, maintaing existing plantings and of course some hard yakka handweeding!
Hope to see you there!
