Presentations, Dinner and Field Day
The next SQLRG workshop will be hosted in the Brisbane Region on the 7th of September at Hanlon Park. The day will include demonstrations and presentations talking about all things CREEKS!!!
07/09/23 – A day of networking and presentations followed by a field tour.
We will then be headed to the park to Hanlon Park /Bur’uda which is a large, open green space in the heart of Stones Corner that has been revitalised by removing the concrete drain and returning Norman Creek to a natural waterway through the park.
The park has been transformed into an attractive and versatile public space that supports the growing Stones Corner Precinct – creating a vibrant urban oasis with more to see and do.
A new nature-themed play area located off Lincoln Street, close to the Stones Corner Community Kindergarten provides natural play opportunities for children aged 0-12 years, including sliding and climbing equipment, sand play and swings, as well as shelter and seating areas for the community.
The ticket price will also include coffee, morning tea, lunch and dinner (cash bar) following the event at a venue to be confirmed.

TOPIC: Ecosystem Restoration and Regulator Requirements
WHEN: Tuesday 26th July – 2:00pm to 3:00pm
PRESENTER: Rhonda Bulmer and Max Stoker from Dendra Systems
Restoring environmental ecosystems whilst conforming to regulatory requirements and challenging sites. The talk will discuss:-
The Southern Queensland Land Rehabilitation Group (SQLRG) is a volunteer network of like minded people promoting best practice in the rehabilitation of disturbed land.
During the year, workshops are held to present current research, site projects and product updates. On the second day a field trip to a nearby rehabilitated site allows a practical situation to be presented and discussed.
The success of SQLRG is partly due to the variety of people who attend, including environmental managers/officers, industry representatives, government officers, conservation volunteers and specialist consultants.
Join the Southern Queensland Land Rehabilitation Group. Memberships run in 12 month increments.
Sponsorship of the SQLRG is encouraged. Your logo will be displayed on this website and can be displayed at workshops.
