As part of the first Queensland Climate Week, the Cooloola Coastcare Weed Warriors are inviting members of the public to be part of the solution by planting a native.

The project is sponsored by the Burnett Mary Regional Group.

On June 6 the Weed Warriors will be revegetating a section of runoff waterway that had been infested with Singapore Daisy leaving it bare of native plants.

“We are asking the community to take a moment to think about climate change and the role native plants play in soil stabilisation,” co-ordinator Jess Milne explained.

There will also be a short stroll to admire the many beautiful native species that adorn the foreshore followed by a free morning tea. The Wetlands and Waterways book and the Beauties and Beasties reference brochure will be available to take home.

To take part, meet at the corner of Toolara Rd and the Esplanade opposite the Cooloola Waters Retirement Village at 10am, all plants and equipment supplied.
