Come along on Sunday 18 November (9am-noon) and be part of the community planting of trees along a stretch of Gustav Creek that has been thoroughly cleared of weeds and debris by MINCA member Charlie McColl over a period of years.
Native species seedlings are being provided by Council and Magnetic Islanders are invited to join with Charlie, MINCA and Townsville City Council staff who are also running a free barbecue as well as providing drinks and a free native plant to take home after the event.
The planting will run from 9am to 12noon and best access is via The Grove towards the entrance to the School grounds in Nelly Bay.
This will be free, but a gold coin donation is appreciated.
