Today is Clean Up Australia Day and Logan was packed with over 65 groups across the city cleaning up parks, schools, wetlands, and more.

The Eagleby Community & Wetlands Group held a clean-up event led by Alan Hoffman from Bush Care and support from Cr Karen Murphy with base camp at the Brigalow Country Community Club.

Many bags of rubbish were collected by the volunteers from all over the wetlands with larger items being noted for council to come and collect at a later date.

Marilyn Goodwin, Chair of Eagleby Community & Wetlands Group, said Alan Hoffman has been the main organiser of this and Cr Karen Murphy cooked the BBQ for all who help clean up.

“Our main purpose of the Eagleby Community & Wetlands Group is to have the proposed northern section of the Coomera connector road moved further east.

“Eagleby is a very special place with a very special environment and a very special place environmentally.

“There are birds, animals can creatures here that are found nowhere else with 320 of Queensland birds species found here and it is all too special to lose.”  

Cr Murphy said thank you to everyone who attended the clean-up event.

“We had about 49 people turn up which is a record for our clean-up days.

“It was great to be able to put on a BBQ after the cleaning so everyone could get some rest, rehydrate and talk.

“I hope to see everyone back next year for Clean Up Australia Day.”
