Creek Catchments program
Within the Brisbane City Council local government area, there are over 25 creek catchments. Many of these catchments flow into the Brisbane River. Council's Creek Catchments program works with 12 community-based catchment groups across Brisbane to help protect and restore creeks and catchments in partnership with volunteers, businesses and other government agencies.

How Council supports catchment groups
There are four dedicated Council officers who work in partnership with the 12 community-based catchment groups. They help groups develop skills and build capacity through:
- skills development and training
- helping plan catchment restoration projects
- supporting the delivery of project funding from environment and sustainability grants and Community Conservation Assistance.
