It was an honour to attend the recent opening of the Mary Grigor Centre, a purpose-built archival storage and interpretive centre in the Glass House Mountains.
The naming of the centre is a fitting acknowledgement of the first female resident of Bankfoot House, Mary Grigor, who was a well-known midwife who played a significant role in the in the lives of the local community.
The addition of this centre to the broader Bankfoot House Heritage Precinct recognises its importance in the region’s rich history. I recommend a visit to Council’s website where you can further explore the history of Bankfoot House.
Our local Bushcare volunteers
Community Nature Conservation is a highly effective environmental program that promotes responsible use and protection of the natural environment.
The program involves community volunteers in saving and restoring natural areas in local communities.
Volunteers make a real difference to our local environment and I encourage community members to learn more about volunteering opportunities by visiting Council’s website for details or by catching up with our local groups who meet at the following locations:
- Coochin Creek Bushcare Group meet at Caralan Way Park, Emma Place
- Sharyn Bonney Bushcare Group meet at Sharyn Bonney Bushland Reserve, Sugarbag Road, Caloundra
- Cahill’s Scrub Bushcare Group meet at Jeanne Street, Peachester
