Ayr , September 26th
Come along and help plant 3000 wetland species over 5 days at Barratta Creek wetland. Come for one day or come for more.
The wetlands and waterways associated with the Barratta Creek catchment have exceptionally high ecological and functional values. With intensive irrigated agriculture in the area, the creek and wetlands have been impacted by invasive aquatic and terrestrial weeds, and nutrient-rich water flows.
By planting these native wetland plants we will prevent erosion and run off, and create habitat improving fisheries.

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.
Opportunity 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 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.

Sandfly Creek Reserve south of Townsville has some remnant endangered Beach Scrub that provides vital habitat and seedbanks.

Join the team to remove invasive weeds especially guinea grass and reduce the fire load.
This area is not accessable unless you come with us, so join in and lend a hand and enjoy the hidden gems around Townsville.
