Numinbah Valley Restoration Project
Nov 24 @ 8:30 am – 10:30 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

Event Navigation

Numinbah Valley Environmental Education Centre Parents & Citizens Association Incorporated (NVEEC P&C) was established in 2012 with the objective offacilitating the development and further improvement of the School, and fostering community interest in environmental education within the local and broader community of the Gold Coast.

In 2014 NVEEC P&C commenced a community environmental restoration project on a portion of public land in the Numinbah Valley (next to the School of Arts building). The aim of this project is to rehabilitate a weed infested drainage line to an area with improved natural values. The site chosen has a high profile within the local community and is an ideal place to promote the value of riparian vegetation and demonstrate techniques used in rehabilitation work. Tasks vary on site from session to session and often include elements of planting, maintenance weeding and mulching.

Site
Meeting Point is Numinbah Valley School of Arts carpark. Project site is adjacent to the carpark- a drainage line flowing into the Nerang River.

Time
8:30-10:30am. We often have a cuppa tea after!

Bring
Enclosed shoes, gloves, water bottle, hat, sunscreen, insect repellent.

You can register for this event on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/FriendsOfFederationWalk/

For your protection please wear sun protective clothing and closed toe footwear and a smile. Bring some water too.
Meet at the beach side car park opposite the Sea World roundabout. Thanks for your support and see you there!
