UQ's beautiful campuses showcase Australia's wildlife and rich biodiversity intermingled with our teaching and research facilities.

We're very proud of our grounds and like to keep our environment looking its best with regular groundskeeping as well as special events to target specific areas.

Throughout the year we have a series of landcare, clean up, tree plantings and bush care regeneration activities drawing groups of volunteers.

All are welcome including staff, students and the broader community.  Come and join us at our next event!
