This regeneration project, at the end of Carey Parade, is being undertaken with funding provided in 2015 by the Queensland Government.  The aim is to extend the habitat of the lyrebirds as well as many other local creatures by planting appropriate native species.

Regeneration is well underway, as can be seen in the photos below. The first was taken in May 2014 after a Conservation Volunteers Australia team had planted out an area. In the second photo, taken little more than a year later from the same spot, great growth is clear to see. 
  
It is expected that the remainder of the site will be cleared and planted up this year. This is another success story in the making, thanks to our Regeneration Coordinator and President, Judith Roland, ably assisted by our contractor, Damien Draper of Red Belly Bushcare Services and a team of willing Landcare volunteers.


 Landcare Lenny, our scarecrow
  Icon for News Items   
Landcare Lenny is a happy character who looks after the Richmond Birdwing butterfly: his arms and face are entwined with Pararistolochia praevenosa, the butterfly's favourite food. He will be silhouetted against an illuminated harvest moon (fingers crossed that it will shine!!).  

Lenny is currently under construction and will be in place at the corner of Long and Hartley Roads by Thursday 15th October.

His scarecrow registration number is 123. Remember this number when you vote for him in the People's Choice at https://www.facebook.com/Tamborine-Mountain-Scarecrow-Festival-164361206988883/timeline/
