WELCOME

The Lagoon Society welcomes you and encourages you to discover what is happening on the Sunshine Coast to protect and enhance our biodiversity through the work we are doing and the partnerships we are building.

The Lagoon Society is a steward of the Sunshine Coast

We aim to make stewardship of our natural environment accessible for all members of our community, and to provide the spaces for all of us to come together to exchange knowledge and ideas.  We want to ensure that the Sunshine Coast maintains a connected and diverse network of habitats and species that provide all of us with clean air, clean water, and sustainable resources into our future.

Read our Biodiversity Strategy

SC Biodiversty Strategy - web version - for circulationOur Sunshine Coast is world renowned for its spectacular mountains, ancient forests, lush wetlands, crystal clear lakes and rivers, and rich estuaries and coastal waters, all home to a great diversity of habitats and species. As development in our region increases, now is the time to take positive action to protect our precious natural heritage.

In partnership with others, the Lagoon Society created a Biodiversity Strategy to guide our community’s action to conserve and sustainably manage biodiversity on the Sunshine Coast. Click here to download our strategy and learn more about the process we took to develop it.

Visit our Expanded EarthFair Store

Earth Fair StoreDid you know that we’ve expanded our EarthFair Store to a new location right in the heart of Madeira Park?

We were graciously offered this satellite store and Lagoon Society outreach location by the good folks at Bluewaters Books. You can still find the same amazing selection of books, but you’ll also discover a range of eco-products available … from LED lights to wind-up radios and much more.

The EarthFair Store is now open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm … please drop by and visit us!
