The Tamborine Bush Volunteers (TBV) welcomed Kelly, Margaret and Jessie to our last working bee at Joalah section Tamborine National Park. Planting a tree for the future is always a popular activity when revegetating the national park. Behind this activity lies many hours of work; clearing weeds, lantana, creepers and other introduced plants.
This project has been a labour of love for the last 8 months and it is rewarding to see the difference a small group of dedicated volunteers can make. With new land acquisitions coming into the Tamborine National Park, there is no shortage of projects for the group to undertake.
The TBV has 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 National Park. The TBV continue to maintain projects at Pirralilla, MacDonald, Palm Grove and The Knoll Sections.
According to information collected by the Visitor Information Centre, the majority of tourists who come to Tamborine Mountain spend time in the National Park, so its preservation has a commercial value as well as an aesthetic one.
TBV working bees are held on the first Saturday of each month. For more information Contact the TBV Coordinator
