Bushcare Group – Tarrabora Bushcare

Tarrabora Reserve is a small vegetated area on the north bank of Currumbin Estuary that was saved from development in 1979. It stands as a testimony to the determination of the Gold Coast community to unite, to protect and nurture our precious natural environment.

9 April 2022 – Toolona Park, Tugun – Bush restoration 9th April

Hello fellow Tarraboreans at Toolona, Tugun

Once again, Tarraboreans and the community will be planting at Toolona this Saturday 9th April.  Usual start time of 8 am.  The Council car will be visible.  Planting will be on the same hill as last month just down from the gate.

Gabe will be on site.

You can park on Taperall Drive in the side street (limited parking) or Murray Street and walk back to planting site.

It is still quite wet in spots Toolona Park,  so shoes could get wet and dirty.

Once again, I won’t be able to make Saturday.  This time, I have a rare opportunity to visit my grand-daughter on the Sunshine Coast.  😍

Could someone please bring morning tea to share?  My apologies I won’t be there.

Don’t forget to wear a hat and bring plenty of water to drink.  It may be hot.

If it is raining, or deemed too soggy, notice will be posted on the FaceBook page.  Saraya usually lets me know so feel free to call me after 7 am for an update.

Enjoy your day – enjoy your weekend!
