Caring for our Coast in Gladstone

‘Sea the change’ we can make to our ocean, wetlands and rivers right here in Gladstone!

As a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef our actions can have a big impact.

Join us as we clean up our creeks, strengthen our dunes, and plant up the wetland down at beautiful Canoe Point.

You will learn about and take action against threats to our coastlines, gain revegetation and bush care skills while meeting like-minded people out in nature.

It’s a great way to connect with nature and your local community.

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to become a hero!

Can’t attend events on the ground?

We know that it’s not always easy to find time to volunteer with us, so we’ve created ways for people to take action anywhere, anytime. Everyone can take part and make a contribution to ocean, wetlands and rivers!

Take action from home with our SeaToSource Plastic Waste Challenge available on our CVA Community app.

Your mission?

Find all the plastic beasts lurking in your bin and cut down on the use of at least one. We will help you along the way with tips and guides. Did you conquer your plastic beast? Let’s find out!
