Would you like to do something practical for our local bushland environment and wildlife? The Coastal Dry Tropics Landcare group has working bees every weekend at selected sites around the city. They are always happy to have extra pairs of hands to help on a Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning, or just go along to watch if you’re not sure whether this is your thing. As they say, you can do as much or as little as you like and have fun at the same time. Information below is from their website, where you can find out more.

Coastal Dry Tropics Landcare Inc. is a not-for-profit, community Landcare group, dedicated to conservation and revegetation activities in the Townsville Region.  CDTLI supports members of the local community who want to understand, protect and improve our unique and beautiful Dry Tropics environment.

Getting involved in Landcare, provides a way for everyone to enjoyably, effectively and safely work together to “put the bush back”. CDTLI has community revegetation sites all around Townsville where regular Revegetation Open Days are held.  Depending on your interest, you can participate in tree planting, weed removal, general site care and monitoring activities. You will learn new skills, have fun, make new friends, and best of all, help your local community and natural environment. Come join us – everyone is welcome and you can do as much or as little as you like!
