 Landcare Centre working bee
Icon for Save Trees message          





On Saturday 31 January, 16 members and extra volunteers from the community planted 150 trees and shrubs, to extend the riparian zone from the creek into the nearby open grassy area. Some volunteers hand-weeded the National Tree Day plantings, and others opted to pot up specimens in the shade house.


During the previous week a team of Conservation Volunteers Australia young people worked at the Centre, planting over 100 trees on the eastern side of the creek and along the southern boundary adjacent to the sports complex. 


Please feel free to visit the site, off the eastern end of Hartley Rd. If you wander down to the waterhole, you may see the resident ducks and tadpoles. In future the invasive privet trees along the creek line will be cleared progressively, and more appropriate species will be planted at future working bees.


Our thanks go to the people who participated at this first working bee and to all other Landcare members who support our many activities on the mountain.


Next working bee:  

  • Where: Landcare Centre (Hartley Road East)
  • When: Saturday 28 February, 8.30am
  • Who: all are welcome!

Celebrating Lamington NP Centenary
Icon for Regional Events          





On a hot day on Sunday 25 January 75 people, whose ages ranged from 3 to 87 years, helped plant 500 trees in the beautiful Egg Rock (Kuraragin) Clearing. This spot forms the junction of several walking tracks leading into the Lamington National Park.


Seven groups, including Tamborine Mountain Landcare, cooperated to provide funds, trees, stakes, tree guards, food and goodwill - and of course people power.  


Participants enjoyed morning tea consisting of damper and bunya nut biscuits topped with Davidson plum jam before heading out on workshops with Bill McDonald, author and distinguished botanist, Glenn Leiper, the author of Mangroves to Mountains, and Kirby Roulstone, a local revegetation specialist.
