Caloundra, Mar 8th and 9 other dates
Throughout 2018 CVA will be facilitating the Happy, Healthy and Green initiative in partnership with Stockland.
This is a free, nature-based, well-being initiative that aims to bring people together to contribute to their community through practical conservation activities to create cleaner, sustainable green spaces.
Working at Dicky Beach with Council's Community Nature Conservation Program, CVA volunteers will be collecting marine debris to prevent harmful materials such as rope, nets and plastics from being washed into the ocean and consumed by/entangling our marine life. All debris that is collected from these activities will be recorded and the data will be provided to the Tangaroa Blue Foundation for analysis, a national database on marine debris which helps to identify source polluters.
CVA would like to thank the Stockland Aura Community Grant for making this program of events possible. Join us for some fun at the beach while meeting like-minded difference and making a real difference for our oceans and marine life!

Eimeo, March 10th
Join Conservation Volunteers Australia as we head to Eimeo Beach to conduct a marine debris survey in an effort to clean up our local beach and raise community awareness of the types of rubbish leaving our hands and entering the marine envrionment.
Marine debris poses a threat to people, kills marine life and damages or alters habitats, reduces navigation safety, and can have substantial economic impacts on local communities
Volunteers will participate in a beach clean up before sorting and recording the quanities in an attempt to determine the sources of rubbish most prominant along our coastline.

Mackay, Mar 12th and 3 other dates
Volunteers will be providing some tender loving care to an area of remnant vegetation along the Gooseponds and Andergrove Woodlands. These areas are important to look after as they provide special insight into what the site may have looked like with the surrounding vegetation pre-european settlement.
By removing invasive weeds that are competing with native species we increase their survival rate. In doing this, we will see an increase in the native vegetation cover, which will in turn overshadow weeds to reduce their abundance whilst most importantly providing habitat for other native flora & fauna.
We will spend a half day at the site, for more details on which site and times please contact our office at 4951 0933
Ingham, Mar 12th and 9 other dates
This is a new and exciting project for CVA, based in the Ingham area approximately 1 hour from Townsville and 3 hours from Cairns. This is an ONE REEF PROGRAM - an initiative of CVA that harnesses the strength of partners, communities and volunteers to repair and reinstate priority wetlands and catchments of the Great Barrier Reef through the delivery of on-ground practical action, education, training, community engagement and volunteering. ONE REEF is focused on mobilising community to make a tangible and practicable on-ground difference to the health and resilience of the Great Barrier Reef by restoring catchments and improving water quality.
pportunity to positively impact the health of the Great Barrier Reef. In partnership with Greening Australia, and the Australian Government, Conservation Volunteers Australia will be undertaking revegetation activities at Palm Creek. We will be collecting seed, planting trees and removing weeds in an effort to improve water quality entering the Great Barrier Reef. Addittional activities may include water quality monitoring, marine debris clean ups and surveys, fencing and experimental wetland restoration methods.
The Ingham area which remains relatively undiscovered by tourism despite the tropical riches it has to offer, from ancient cultures and rainforests to stunning beaches and coral reefs. With its warm weather and unique wildlife, the region is an ideal destination for anyone who wants to volunteer in beautiful habitats away from hordes of holidaymakers.
Volunteers need to bring and wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, boots or sturdy shoes, and a broad-brimmed hat. It is also recommended that volunteers bring and use sun-screen (30+) and tropical-strength insect repellent. Much of the site is sloping and not suitable for people with mobility problems.

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!
Gladstone, March 23rd
A World Wetland Day event will be held on Friday 2nd February 2018 this event celebrates signing of the Convention on Wetlands, an international treaty for the conservation and wise use of wetlands. Wetlands are a precious natural asset, critical globally for water and food security, reducing the impacts of flood and storm surges, storing carbon and providing wildlife habitat.
Better Earth volunteers will work alongside community and Gladstone Regional Council to strengthen the environmentally significant area of Byellee Wildlife Reserve from impacts of increased urbanised pressures, silt and erosion and weed infestations.
Byellee covers an area of fresh water and saltwater interface from the Calliope River mangroves and saltpan to the freshwater lagoon and diverse open bush land. The area includes bird habitats of regional significance, bush land forest communities considered of concern including riverine blue gum, riparian rainforest and paper barks on alluvium and fresh water swamps.
The site covers an area of Calliope River mangroves and saltpans through to permanent freshwater lagoons and contains a rich diversity of bird species.

Finch Hatton 4756, Mar 27th and 2 other dates
Come build a Butterfly Garden with Conservation Volunteers Australia!
Out at Finch Hatton State School, CVA is building a butterfly garden. The native habitat around the school is quite degraded, and our volunteers will be on this project from day one! The first step will be preparing the site by removing the invasive weeds. We will also be building a small nursery to locally propagate desirable plants for butterflies. 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!
