Ironbark Gully Picnic Area
Samford Conservation Forest, Samford
Saturday 15th September
8:30am – 9:30am
The Samford Conservation Park is 624 hectares with many designated mountain bike trails and plenty of shared trails for walkers and riders. This is a pleasant and easily accessible spot for outdoor gatherings, horse riding, bushwalking and mountain bike riding. The park is part of the ‘Mangroves to Mountains’ nature corridor, which connects remnant bushland from the D’Aguliar Range through the suburbs into Moreton Bay Region, protecting vital wildlife habitats.
This morning I want you to get out on the trails and clean up as you go. Currently I have some 20 caches on my map sitting in the region of the Samford Forest. Have you found them all? Maybe take to walk and practice your CITO’ing on the way. There are several entry points to Samford Forest with parking spaces located at the Ironbark Gully Picnic Area and Lomandra day-use area carpark along with other numerous spots to gain access to the Forest.
Once you clean up the forest trails it’s a simple matter of bringing your rubbish; to the drop off point, loading it onto the trailer see what I did there - you load it!). Then make your way over to where I am going to have the BBQ running from 9:15am with some bacon and fresh bread ready for you to construct a yummy breakfast and have a chat with all the other CITO’ers
Above all remember that this clean-up is at your own risk and you need to consider all safety precaution particularly with children.
