Cypress Lane Wetland, May20

In 2014 we restarted the Cypress Lane Wetlands stewardship program which was so successfully run in the past by Jim McKissock and his volunteers. Under the direction of Noixium Berrios, our new environmental educator, our plan is to continue Jim's work in the same location in Crocker Industrial Park.

Volunteers are welcome to join the restoration workdays on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month from 9:00-11:30am at the Cypress Lane Wetlands in Brisbane's Crocker Industrial Park. Meet at the site.
