The Birth of the Kedron Brook Catchment Branch-WPSQAt a well attended public meeting on 30 April 2002, it was decided that a Kedron Brook Catchment Branch of the WPSQ be formed.
People at the meeting were from Bushcare Groups, local councils (Brisbane City Council and Pine Rivers Shire Council), existing members of the WPSQ and interested individuals.
Strong support was shown to establish the Branch under the auspices of the Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland which had a long association with the Brook.
The Branch was to have a broad charter but its initial focus was to continue the work of the existing Kedron Brook Catchment Network. Formation of an incorporated association meant that the KBCB could apply for and manage funds, manage and provide insurance cover for 'whole-of catchment' type projects.
An interim committee consisting of members of the informal steering group was elected. These people included Philip Rowland as President, Helen Moriarty as Secretary and Donald Hopkins as Treasurer.

KBCB Organisation and Meetings
Changes to our KBCB Committee
We recently said farewell to our Past-Treasurer, Lennert Veerman, who has left Brisbane with wife and their children for an important Health Improvement position in Sydney. Lennert not only spent valuable time with the Committee but also worked with the Kalinga Park Bushcare Group. He and his son, Hugo, were great birders when attending our monthly bird observation walks.
Rachael Williams has now changed with her role to Treasurer. Philip Rowland will look after the role of Secretary, and Robert Standish-White continues as President.
Our next programmed walk for 2017 will be held on Sunday 5 February, 7.00 am, at Nudgee Waterhole Reserve/Kedron brook Floodway to Nudgee Beach. See details on our bird observation project page.
The program for next year is also now out with a link from the project page above. It provides a convenient calendar of these activities with details of each walk planned for 2017.
Please contact Outing Coordinator, Jenny Ivin, on phone 3851 0160 or for further information.
