The partnership between Tamborine Mountain Landcare and Tamborine Bush Volunteers in restoring the strip of rainforest along Main Street near the RSL War Memorial is set to continue with Phase 2 scheduled for Saturday 4th June from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.
Mountain residents, especially families and children, are invited to take part in helping our native birds and animals to survive and thrive by planting a tree or shrub that will contribute towards the restoration of their wild habitat. Over the years the loss of habitat through the invasion of foreign pest plants like lantana, morning glory and privet (to mention only three) has contributed greatly to the loss of native flora and fauna species. By eradicating these pests as was done in Phase 1 of the Main Street blitz, and by the replanting of native varieties as planned for Phase 2, we will be helping restore the ecological diversity of our mountain’s rainforests.
