Connecting Community for Waterways
Gold Coast

Connecting Community for Waterways is a collaborative effort between Natura Education, Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre, Save our Waterways Now, Gold Coast Catchment Association, Nerang River Keepers, All Saints Anglican School, and the City of Gold Coast.

The project involves students and community collecting native seeds for prison inmates participating in horticulture training at Arthur Gorrie’s Correctional Centre. Tens of thousands of plants have been grown and returned to the community for planting in waterway restoration and education activities.
