2008 Aug - TNP Joalah Section - WhipbirdThe Tamborine Bush Volunteers work with Queensland Parks and Wildlife rangers to revegetate areas of the national park which are under attack from escaped garden plants.  At the August working bee, 14 members cleared weeds, lantana and garden creepers from an area of Joalah Section of Tamborine National Park.

Our activity did not deter the .  This find was a surprise and was of interest to the students from the Queensland Academy for Health Sciences who are working with the Tamborine Bush Volunteers on a community service project.

If you would like to join the group to plant up this area you would be more than welcome.  Our next working bee will be on 6 September. We will meet at Dapsang Avenue, Eagle Heights park entrance.

TBV working bees are held on the first Saturday of each month.  New members are always welcome – no membership fees, work at your own pace.  For more information on the group Contact the TBV Coordinator

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
