Help Needed - OCCA is Moving to Coopers Plains!

9MacDevittSt

The big OCCA Move is happening! OCCA has enjoyed the support of Brisbane Markets Ltd for over 14 years, generously providing us with a temporary base of operations in Rocklea (and really stretching the definition of temporary) . Recently we were offered a house by Consolidated Properties as part of the Cornerstone Living development in Coopers Plains. This location, while still only temporary, will give OCCA the opportunity to consolidate our Native Plant Nursery, Biodiversity Services Team and Resource Centre to one site at 9 Macdevitt Street, Coopers Plains.

Ahead of the move there is a lot of work to be done and we need your help to get the catchment centre up and running in as short a time as possible.

OCCA General Meeting and Presentation - Oxley Creek Water Quality - 28 April

Join us for OCCA's bi-monthly general meeting at 5.30pm on Tuesday 28 April at the Oxley Creek Common (Red Shed), Sherwood Road Rocklea.

The meeting will feature a Special Presentation on Water Quality in Oxley Creek by Tony Weber. Tony's presentation will also include the high enterococci levels recorded at Cliveden Avenue

Tony is an Associate at consultants BMT WBM with over 25 years experience in the water industry. As the National Practice Leader for Water Quality, he manages the water quality discipline across BMT WBM’s Australian operations.  In his current role, Tony provides a range of water quality related services to government and industry across Australia, the UK, Europe and Asia.  Tony has a degree in chemistry from QUT, is a Visiting Fellow at the Australian National University’s Fenner School.

Tony first got involved in Oxley Creek through training programs he delivered for the Waterwatch Program in the early 1990s, also running several water quality monitoring programs from the old Council’s laboratories at Donaldson Rd, Rocklea and then as part of the Waterways Program in Brisbane City Council.  Being tempted to the “dark side” of consulting in 2002, he has still worked in the catchment including helping manage Forest Lake, building catchment models of Oxley Creek and being involved with nutrient management for QUU.

You'll also get to hear about OCCA's current projects and recent activities and get an update on OCCA's new Catchment Centre in Coopers Plains!

Volunteers, friends, members, and general public, all welcome.

Light refreshments will be provided.
