Our recent working bee on Saturday 2nd February was the first for 2008. The group welcomed a new member, David who put in a huge effort. We were fortunate that the predicted rain held off until the evening so we managed a considerable amount of work in the top section of Pirralilla (near the fig tree roundabout.) One group cleared ragweed and numerous asparagus fern, cassia and ochna seedlings while the other group planted understory plants mainly ginger and walking stick palms. As shown in the photo, a male bower bird has taken advantage of our revegetation work.
After morning tea we moved to the easement at Central Aveune (a part of Palm Grove Section). This area was weeded and hoop pine, blue quandong, several ginger and cordylines were planted. A big thank you to all who worked so hard during the morning. We will return to this area again in the near future to complete our work.
The TBV have a long association with Tamborine Mountain as the group was formed in March 1988 and has worked continuously since then in maintaining and enhancing all Sections of the Tamborine National Park. The group meets on the first Saturday of each month. Work is varied and members (of all ages) choose tasks to suit their stamina. The time worked is up to each individual and membership is free.
