2011 11 02 DicksonPk - PlantOn Wednesday 2 November I led a small group of birdos through John Dickson Conservation Park, a 3.57ha Council park in the Forest Park area of North Tamborine. This park was set aside as a condition of approval of the subdivision of the area in about 1980.

For ten years from 1984 the TM Field Naturalists’ Club worked to convert the open kikuyu paddock into a natural area by planting native plants.  The Club disbanded in the mid-1990s and no work was done in the park till a local   community group began work there again in 2000.

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.
