Summertime Reading
Our Piccabeen Bookshop is well stocked to tempt all readers with books that are just right for every season of the year.

The funds generated by this shop are crucial in supporting our work financially. Our volunteer staff are very friendly: do drop in to say hello and buy a book or two.

2018 Report Card
Icon for News Items  

Thanks to our members, our Management Committee, site team members and Piccabeen Bookshop volunteers, our organisation has continued its great work this year. Our volunteers have contributed 4,000 hours in the last 12 months - the equivalent of approximately $120,000 which TM Landcare has contributed to our local community!

The year's highlights include:  
  • the successful completion of the Skywalk project
  • a National Tree Day planting of 450 trees at Guanaba Park
  • student visits to Esme Park and the Landcare Centre
  • the opening of a rainforest learning space at St Bernard School, partly funded by TM Landcare

With coordination by Judith Roland and an annual grant from SRRC, our site team volunteers and contractors have been hard at work regenerating 18 forest and park sites of our Corridors Biodiversity Project. Access tracks through the major sites are regularly followed by nature walkers and bird watchers.

TM Landcare and the TM Natural History Association have signed an agreement about the use of and access to the shared biodiversity database.  Highlights of the Biodiversity Subcommittee's work include: 
  • a submission from TM Landcare to the Queensland Audit Office regarding the conservation of threatened species
  • ongoing work with the National Trust to register significant trees on the mountain
  • a survey of species in the Corbould Section of Tamborine National Park.

Piccabeen Bookshop
Our second-hand bookshop, staffed by volunteers, continues to make a profit, boosted by a half-price bookshop sale and a mega sale of surplus donated books. The bookshop is popular with local and off-mountain browsers and is an integral part of the mountain's cultural wealth.

Our 2019 Agenda
  • Continuing our regeneration projects at SRRC parks and reserves, with the help of SRRC funding
  • Providing advice and assistance to private landholders for conservation and restoration work on their properties
  • Building on our good relations with other Landcare groups in the region
  • Focusing on education activities with local school students
