Welcome to the Oxley Creek Catchment

OCCA Presentation: Logan Rivers and Wetlands Recovery Program


Tuesday 29 April, 5.30pm, Greenbank


Donald Mackenzie, Principal Environment Officer for Logan City Council will discuss the Logan Rivers and Wetlands Recovery Program, explore the strategic outcomes that define the Plan and highlight trial Recovery activities and initiatives that are currently being implemented.

Logan Rivers and Wetlands Recovery

The waterways that connect L ogan City have integral social, economic and environmental values and are an important part of the city's landscape. It is recognised that healthy rivers and creeks play a pivotal role in supporting a community's liveability and are central to developing and sustaining a sense of place and community identity. With increasing pressure on our waterways, it is essential that we protect, enhance and celebrate these natural assets.

The draft Logan Rivers and Wetlands Recovery Plan, informed following recommendations from the Logan Water Summit and through on-going community consultation, details key strategic outcomes and actions to work towards the vision: "Working together to support healthy rivers and wetlands that sustain Logan's culture, lifestyle and livelihood." The importance of a balanced approach to River Recovery was evident throughout the engagement, with community stewardship a central element.

This presentation is part of the Oxley Creek Catchment Association's bimonthly General Meeting. These meetings are a great way to catch up with our activities, meet our members and supporters and swap stories with others who share a love for our natural environment.

All are welcome and please bring a friend

Save the Date - Peaks to Points is back for 2014!

Peaks to Points Festival showcases the beauty in our backyard

Discover the beauty in greater Brisbane’s backyard at the Peaks to Points Festival 2014, from Saturday 19 July to Sunday 3 August 2014. Experience amazing natural areas right at your doorstep through free events and hands-on activities from the ‘peaks’ - Flinders Peak near Ipswich - across the south side of the Brisbane River, to the ‘points’ of Moreton Bay.

The festival brings together community groups, local businesses, councils and environmental groups to celebrate greater Brisbane’s ‘wild side’. Through bush walks, canoeing, birdwatching, tree plantings, workshops, bus tours and lots of other great eco-activities you can learn more about our wonderful natural environment, and how we can protect and enhance it.

The festival kicks off with Family Day at the Oxley Creek Common on Sunday 20 July 2014 (free entry). Take in the winter sun while enjoying live entertainment, children’s activities, canoeing on Oxley Creek, displays, workshops and a selection of hot and cold food.
