2010 Nov - TNP - Geissemenn DrThe Tamborine Bush Volunteers have been working on a section of Tamborine National Park which borders Geissmann Drive.  Lantana clearing and revegetating the area with rainforest trees is slowly taking place in the area behind the remnant rainforest.  At our last working bee we were very visible and attracted a lot of interest from the passing traffic.

An area along the roadside in Geissmann Drive was treated recently to remove morning glory and canary creeper and we have started to replant the area.  You can watch this space and monitor how the rainforest can bounce back if given a chance.

The TBV has a long association with Tamborine Mountain and continues to maintain revegetated areas at Pirralilla, MacDonald, Palm Grove, Joalah and The Knoll Sections.

If you would like to get involved with an activity that can make a real difference to the environment and enjoy a chat with a group of friendly people, the Tamborine Bush Volunteers is the group for you.  TBV working bees are held on the first Saturday of each month..  For more information on this project 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.
