Acknowledgements


Our goal is to provide native habitat by planting natives and removing introduced weeds.

We thank the Moggill Creek Catchment Group for advice and information and for providing us with numerous local species of native plants. Their official website –

http://www.moggillcreek.org/

– is a fount of authoritative information which would still be relevant for those living outside the western area of Brisbane.

We thank Brisbane City Council for their support through the Land For Wildlife Program and particularly our Program Officer, Peter Hayes. Thanks also, BCC, for removing the Chinese Elms from the roadside opposite our driveway!
