Vol­un­teers needed at Land­care

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

MOOLOOLAH River Water­watch and Land­care is an es­tab­lished community nurs­ery that has been op­er­at­ing for 26 years. It’s run by vol­un­teers who have a pas­sion for bush­land and na­tive wildlife.

There are three main as­pects of the not-for-profit: land­care or­gan­i­sa­tion, the na­tive nurs­ery and bio­con­trol fa­cil­ity for weeds.

The na­tive nurs­ery is open to the pub­lic with lo­cal na­tive plants for a range of needs, from unit bal­conies to large-scale acreage.

Plants start at $2.50 and dis­count for mem­bers $2.25.

There’s spe­cial­ist ad­vice avail­able for reveg­e­tat­ing your prop­erty or you can ob­tain na­tive plants on re­quest.

At the Land­care you can also find in­sects to bi­o­log­i­cally con­trol in­va­sive weed species.

Ed­u­ca­tional work­shops for all ages, community weed­ing and plant­ing days and school/community group vis­its are all avail­able. Vol­un­teers are in de­mand. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact 0432 227 431 or visit mooloolah­wa­ter­watch and­land­care.org.
