Brisbane City Council's Creek Catchments program has officers who work with community catchment groups across Brisbane. They help protect and restore catchments as part of the Community Conservation Partnerships program. The program plays an important role in improving the health of Brisbane's waterways. Creek Catch Officers support the catchment groups. They help improve habitat and biodiversity and create greater awareness of catchment issues in the wider community.
Most people associate the word ‘catchment’ with dams, but every creek, stream and river has its own catchment. We all live in a catchment and can influence the quality of Brisbane’s waterways and ultimately Moreton Bay.
Creek Catchment Officers help the community protect and restore Brisbane's waterways and bays in partnership with the 11 catchment groups city wide.
Find links to Brisbane's creeks and catchment groups, including community contacts and details on how to contact your local group. Council also facilitates the Habitat Brisbane program. This program helps community groups restore natural habitats in parks, remnant bushland, wetlands and along waterways.
Some Brisbane catchment groups run community native plant nurseries. Find out more about your local plants and meet like-minded local residents.
