UQ Sustainability, the Centre of Marine Science, the Society for Conservation Biology UQ Brisbane Chapter, UQ GEMS and the School of Psychology invite UQ students and staff to help us clear rubbish and participate in bush care activities along the river bank.

It's been shown that collecting plastic waste near coasts, rather than in the oceans, is the most effective way to reduce plastic pollution, so come along and lend a hand.

Bring a water bottle and gloves (we’ll provide these for anyone who can’t bring them). Closed shoes and sun protection are essential.

About Campus beautification

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!



Meet on the corner of Sir William MacGregor Drive and Thynne Road, St Lucia campus
