Creekside Greening

Unitywater’s Creekside Greening Program is an environmental initiative to support the health of our region’s waterways.

We partner with our councils, schools and local community and bushcare groups to revegetate public spaces with native seedlings.

To date, we’ve planted more than 12,000 seedlings at various sites across the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay.

The plantings create vegetation buffers along rivers and wetlands to filter runoff before it enters the waterways, and also provide habitats for fauna.

Our most recent Creekside Greening event was held at Pine Rivers Wetland Reserve on 29 July 2016.

    Saving Tips
  • Gardening Tip #3

    Choose a drought-tolerant lawn species and leave your lawn 2.5cm high or longer to reduce evaporation and remember brown grass is often still alive and will regenerate with rain.
