It's Never Too Hot for Reading
Our Piccabeen Bookshop is well stocked to tempt all readers with books that are just right for summer's lethargic days and nights.

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.

Thank you
  Icon Meetings
With your wonderful support as members of Tamborine Mountain Landcare, we're looking forward to another year of regenerating our forests and enhancing the habitats of its denizens. We all support the cause in the varied ways we can - by our membership dues, perhaps by joining a working bee or taking a shift at the bookshop, or by serving on our Management Committee. Some individuals and corporations have been able to make significant donations, such as our new corporate member, Thunderbird Park / Cedar Creek Lodges, who are n ow regularly donating money towards our projects.  
In this issue: updates on our current and planned projects for 2020  
Privet Removal at the Lions Park
Icon for Save Trees message  
Volunteers from the Tuesday Team have begun eradicating this dreadful weed from the Lions Park on Curtis Rd. Once the privet has all been removed, we will plant a sizeable corridor along the boundary with local natives, to create more wildlife habitat.  We are working with Scenic Rim Regional Council, who have care of the park, on this project. The photo below shows some of the corridor area, which has now been mulched, where planting will begin in the next few months.

The Shelf Rd Richmond Birdwing Butterfly Project

Our contractor has almost completed preparation for the planting of nectar trees. Five hundred trees are to be planted in February; thanks to the recent rains the tubestock will get off to a good start. Further plantings will be undertaken in the near future, and the birdwing butterfly vines will be planted next year.

Maintenance at Our Many Reserves and Parks

We have received $26,000 from Scenic Rim Regional Council from their environmental grants program. These funds will enable us to hire contractors for regular weed and track maintenance in 2020.
2019 National Tree Day Planting 
Icon for Save Trees message  
The trees planted at Guanaba Park struggled a little in the very dry conditions last spring. However, with the help of the Rural Fire Brigade, who watered all the seedlings on their training nights, as well as the recent rain, the youngsters are thriving now.  
Piccabeen Bookshop Funds

Moneys raised by the sale of our quality second hand books are used to support projects on sites not under SRRC jurisdiction. One such is the Tamborine Mountain State School Rainforest, located at the back of the school carpark. Regular work is being carried out there to eradicate invasive vines and other weeds. This tiny jewel of forest is now being used by the school for environmental / science learning. The newly planted Richmond Birdwing Butterfly vines there will be a good food source for butterflies.
Date Claimer: National Tree Day Sunday 2nd August

This year's event will be held at Rosser Park. Mark the date in your diary, and watch this space for further details.
