58 volunteers gathered at Gibson Island last week, Thursday 22 June 2023, to install over 300 plants and collect rubbish.
The morning’s work helped create and clean wildlife habitat and improve the local landscape and waterway health.
Since its inception in 2018, B4C and our Industrial Landcare Partners have planted over 9000 plants, over 23 events.
A special thanks to Incitec Pivot for sponsoring last week’s event. We would also like to thank Energex for clearing weeds in preparation for the planting.
Many volunteers had attended previous industrial landcare events at Gibson Island, including regular attendees: VISY, Powerlink, Port of Brisbane, Ocean Crusaders and Urban Utilities.
New industries that joined yesterday included Inghams, Fortescue Future Industries, FKG and Mastercard. Thank you!
Work to clean, weed, plant and rejuvenate Gibson Island through Industrial Landcare will help protect threatened wildlife including nesting birds, mammals and marine species. B4C holds approximately three Industrial Landcare Events per year.
