Above all things, keeping our city clean and green is critical to ensuring that Brisbane remains a liveable city for our children, and for future generations. This is why we choose to celebrate World Environment Day each year, and why I remain committed with our Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner to rolling out the most ambitious environmental agenda in our city’s history.
On this note, I would like to thank the Centenary and District Environment Action & Wolston and Centenary Catchment group – who helped us celebrate at the Pooh Corner Environment Centre on Sunday 5 June.
The event kicked off with a bird watching walk, followed by an environment hunt through the bush followed by a reptile show. We even had a visit from Recycleman, a superhero that teaches children about the importance of recycling.
We upcycled an old canvas and invited the children to use fresh eucalyptus and gum leaves to create a community painting. This will now be displayed at Pooh Corner Environment Centre.
