Oxley Creek Common Tree Day Site Details

Oxley Creek Common

The aim of our work at Oxley Creek Common is to improve the quality and width of riparian habitat along the creek. Oxley Creek Catchment Association and the Tuesday Common Carers have been working at the parkland to reduce weeds and improve the quality of habitat for preservation of local flora and fauna. The site has been impacted over the years by clearing, edge effects and flooding which has reduced the width of the riparian habitat corridor and introduced a range of weed species. We will be planting native species endemic to the area in and around sites currently being cleared of weeds by the Tuesday Common Carers (a weekly Bushcare Group operating at the site). By planting out these zones we hope to reduce the likelihood of weed species occurring. This event will be undertaken as part of the Peaks to Points Festival, a 2 week celebration of local community efforts to care for the creek catchments along the southern side of the Brisbane River.
