Revel in the Spring air with a free, family fun day under the trees at Norman Creek. And help the Norman Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee (aka N4C) celebrate the opening of its refurbished, environmentally friendly community education centre. Additions to the building include solar panels and a fabulous community mural which covers the entire lower level.

N4C is a non-profit community environmental group and this event also marks the official launch of Norman Creek 2012-2031, a collaborative urban water resources management project between N4C and the Brisbane City Council. N4C has been working tirelessly on naturalising our degraded waterways since 1996. The committee has an open arms policy and is always on the lookout for new members to assist with their on-the-ground projects. They also hold monthly meetings which are open to the public and they welcome community feedback.

Join the committee on Saturday 15th September for a delicious melding of festival fun and environmental education. N4C has extended an open invitation to the community and the event promises to delight attendees of all ages.

Kids will marvel at the magician, go nuts on the jumping castle, have a swing at the pinata, be transformed into a fairy or superhero with facepainting, and express their creativity through the creek collage project. And while the kids are absorbed in a storytelling session, the adults can enjoy a relaxed game of Bocce on the lawn.

There will be plenty of multicultural food on hand including a German sausage and sauerkraut barbecue. Council will be supplying a coffee van and visitors can purchase organic urban farm honey and homemade jams and chutneys. There will be a strong local community group presence, an art display and a vintage clothing sale. In addition to a live native animal display, visitors can avail themselves of the native plant giveaway or get some free advice on native plants.

Live music and busker style entertainment will provide the perfect musical soundtrack to the picturesque, natural scenery surrounding you; soak up the community atmosphere and the sights and sounds of a spring day under the trees.

This community event is also part of the mammoth 16 day Peaks to Points Festival which aims to celebrate our stunning local environment and to educate the public about the protection and maintenance of our natural assets.
