Working together for a healthy,
December B4C Sustainability Centre Open Day
This Saturday we welcome Professor Darryl Jones back to the B4C Sustainability Centre. He was here in 2016 talking about the successful Compton Rd fauna overpass at Karawatha Forest. This time, following a road ecology conference in the Netherlands and further research and monitoring, he'll be sharing the latest innovations in road ecology with us. Hear about what is being (and can be) done to help critters get from A to B safely and to encourage healthy populations!
Open Day - Saturday 1st December, 9am-12pm
9.30am: presentation by Prof Darryl Jones - behavioural ecologist (Griffith Uni) talking about the latest innovations in fauna movement solutions.
Following the presentation there will be morning tea and a tour of our nursery and gardens.
Location: B4C Sustainability Centre, Cnr 1358 Old Cleveland Rd & Wright St, Carindale (entrance off Wright St)
Our open day guest speakers are funded by the Bulimba Creek Environment Fund. This helps us to bring free education and inspiration to the community while supporting those doing important environmental/sustainability work.
This Saturday is also a great chance to pick up some unique and sustainability themed Christmas gifts - Boomerang Bags, home-made jam and natural honey. We don't have EFTPoS so bring your spare change. We also have our book swap stand (bring a book to swap with any book).

Toad busting night! Tuesday 4th December, 6.30pm Around Winstanley Street Bridge, Carindale
Come and help us catch Cane Toads! We'll then be putting them on ice for UQ and their Cane Toad Challenge. As part of this program, poison is then extracted and used in the baits for us to then be able to trap the tadpoles in the Bulimba Creek Catchment and beyond! This event is supported by the Brisbane City Council and will be led by BCC Creek Catchment Officer Michael Thorley. Numbers are limited and bookings are essential.
Get 'em before they turn into toads!
Also contact us about borrowing one of our cane toad tadpole traps! It's a citizen science project as part of the Cane Toad Challenge and will require you to record your results.
