Conservation Volunteers work to restore a beautiful freshwater lagoon situated approximately 40minutes from Mackay, in between Mirani and Marian in the picturesque Pioneer Valley.

The Lagoon was grazed by cattle until recently when the area was fenced off and revegetation of the degraded banks commenced. Although still a long way to go, the improvements made to this unique environment so far have not only increased the water quality but also enticed native wildlife to return to the area, making it a bird lovers dream!

Activities include weed control, plant identification and soil improvement prior to the planting day on the 22nd of March 2016 on World Water Day.
