Citizen Science

There are many scientific studies running in the Slacks Creeks catchment that you can get involved in.

Discover the frogs at Shailer Pioneer Park

Who Croaks at Shailer Pioneer Park? On the 11th and 12th of October 2017, Logan City Council in collaboration with the University of Queensland held frogs surveys at Shailer Pioneer Park. The surveys were part of a broader study which aimed to compare a constructed wetland with natural/more established wetlands for frog species richness in the urban catchment of Slacks Creek in the City of Logan.

Guided explorations

Logan City Council encourages you to venture down the paths and discover the beauty that lies beyond the playgrounds. Wetlands, birds, mangroves and the meeting point of Slacks Creek and the Logan River are all to be discovered. If you’re lucky you might just spot a koala in the gums that line Slacks Creek.


If you'd like to give the environment a helping hand, learn or develop skills or spend time with like-minded people - why not get on board and help monitor the Logan and Albert river's mangroves?

Pest Fishing

More than over 50 Logan residents attended Council’s first ever family pest fishing competition dubbed the "Carp Cup" on Sunday 26 February 2017. The event was held at the Demeio Park water body in Marsden. Both adults and children took part and as you can see from the smiling faces, fun and doing something good for the environment is a big win for everyone.
