2017-02-18 Contour1 - Tabernaemontana pandacaqui - Banana Bush - Flower and FruitOur first walk for 2017 was to revisit Contour1 Regeneration Area as the working track had been reconfigured with the help of the Green Army to be a circuit of approximately 450 metres and winds through various types of forest systems. So we found it a good track for many examples of forest type species.  Map

2016-03-24 NW Cliff Way - Judith giving some background infoAfter rain most days for weeks, we had a clear bright morning to enjoy the walk with Mike, Julie, David, Judith, Roslyn and Lawrence. We maintained a slow pace by being busy identifying many species in the first 200 meters. All up it was 2 hours for a very short walk with plenty of bird song for the journey.

2015-11-27 TMNHA Nature Walk - Beechmont - Back Creek

2015-11-27 TMNHA NatureWalk Beechmont BackCk - CreekFor an annual change of scene, we left Tamborine Mountain for Beechmont, Queensland with the assistance of local Susan Cully to view a relatively hidden gem of a conservation area. Eight Nature Walk members of Tamborine NHA and some Beechmont members of Caring for Plateaus who were also in Beechmont District Landcare Association (BDLA) and Lamington NHA met in Akoonah Drive off Binna Burra Road. Here we entered the Back Creek Regeneration project for an easy walk on a simple track north along the creek through a Beechmont District Landcare Association Reserve project. Some very few bits of beautiful remnant vegetation still remain. Re-vegetation is ongoing.

2016-02-26 TMNHA Nature Walk TM Ohia Court

2016-02-26 TMNHA NW Ohia Ct - Creek Crossing   This is a return 2 years after our last visit to this nature place. It was a clear warm morning with light breezes. The first thing we noticed here is how much cooler it is with the growth of trees and other habitat at the Ohia Ct. Reserve. Increased density of trees, under-story and ground-covers was significant since 2 years ago. A sign of a healthy and productive regeneration environment was the amount of new seedling growth that has self-started.

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.
