 Two Sites Supported by Government Grants
Icon for Save Trees message
1.    Areca Gully - Extending the Wildlife Corridor   
Regeneration work started on this site, between Contour Rd and Kinabalu Drive, only four years ago. Since then we have made remarkable progress in clearing lantana and noxious weeds and replanting with native rainforest species. Now a 2015 Federal Government grant to mark the 25th Anniversary of Landcare in Australia has enabled us to hire a contractor for the heavy work of clearing and replanting the remaining approximately 2ha. Our Landcare volunteer Mobile Team and a group of corporate volunteers have helped with this regeneration. The remnant forest along the gully will supplement these plantings with natural regeneration.

Do take a visit the site to see the results. Wander down the track, which starts at Contour Road opposite Areca Gully, past the fabulous fig tree (The Magic Faraway Tree?) and down through the remnant forest to the open area where you can see our current regeneration work.

A big thank you to all those who have rolled up their sleeves on this lovely site - not forgetting our president, Judith Roland, for her very effective work in writing grant applications and final reports.

 2.    Millet Reserve Lyrebird Project  
Millet Park is a Council reserve of 8ha at the end of Carey Parade. Since 2011 we have been working alongside Council on its regeneration. In 2015 TM Landcare applied to the Queensland Government for an 'Everyone's Environment' grant.  We succeeded, under the Conservation heading, because of the documented existence of lyrebirds in the adjacent forest. Our stated goal was to extend this lyrebird habitat by clearing lantana and planting local species. This work has primarily been carried out by our contractors, with teams of Landcare volunteers assisting with the planting.

To see this site, drive down the public road at the end of the cul-de-sac at Carey Pde and park in the clearing on the left approximately 100 metres from the top of the site. From this clearing you can walk down to see the newest work area.
