This Thursday 8am-12pm

The Whitsunday MTBC are excited to announce that we have entered into a memorandum of understanding contract (MOU) with Queensland Wildlife Parks & Services (QWPS)!!

The WMTBC have been working towards obtaining this contract for over 15 months and are very excited about the opportunities this opens for the club.
The contact is a formal agreement between the two parties to work collaboratively for the betterment of the trails and our shared community. Benefits include the ability to officially and legally participate in trail maintenance, design and potential alterations to trails in the Whitsundays managed by QWPS.

This Thursday March 19th we will be students in our first Trail Care Leaders Workshop held by QWPS where we will be discussing the direction and focus for trail care/development for 2015 and beyond as well as getting some hands-on learning.

Participants that attend this course will become ‘Trail Care Leaders’ and will in turn be in a position to lead groups of WMTBC volunteers on maintenance days/weekends. We strongly encourage members interested in trail design and development to be involved, in due course we will be looking to implement an ‘Adopt a Trail’ scheme similar to the Rockwheelers in Townsville.

We have agreed with QWPS to commit to 4 hours of our time on Thursday morning and expect to be well within mobile phone reception at all times. There is no cost to be involved but you must be a WMTBC member. If you need to renew your membership please do so by following this link.

We can only offer 3 hours of our time (as we have day-jobs) and would need to stay within phone reception.
QWPS can accommodate a maximum of 6 participants.

Please email back to reserve your spot.
