SPRING IS COMING AND THE WILDFLOWERS ARE BLOOMING ON BRIBIE

BIEPA’s “Wonders of the Wallum” Spring Wildflower Walk on Sunday 1st September, meeting at 8:00 am at Cnr of Cotterill Ave and Protea Dve, Bongaree. BIEPA members and Allan Carr from Native Plants Queensland (Caboolture Branch) are excited to welcome and assist you through this delightful walk in Bribie’s Wonderful Wallum.

Once the low plains and sandy seaside hills and dunes of South East Queensland were alive with the noise of frogs, insects and chattering birds and were covered with Wallum – a mosaic of low shrubbery woodlands and heath. Now, relatively small remnants of Wallum heath remain in mainland South East Queensland.

Fortunately, some areas are preserved in National Parks and Conservation Parks, but the Wallum heaths are battling to survive intact. Recreation, development, waste dumps, weeds and drainage water from surrounding suburbia threaten the fragile plant species and dogs, cats and toads harass the ground-dwelling wildlife.

Please dress for the weather. Hat, sturdy shoes, long sleeves, long trousers recommended. If you are a bird enthusiast bring binoculars. For more information, contact Jenny: 0447 350 702. Bribie Island Environmental Protection Association Annual WONDERS OF THE WALLUM Spring Wildflower Walk. Sunday, September 1st, 8 am – 11 am.
