Roving Restorers - Noosa Chapter

Roving Restorers was initiated on the Blackall Range in 2012 by Hinterland Bush Links. This group consists of volunteers from the community who assist both private and publid landholders with environmental weed control, revegetation and re-connection of habitat in their restoration projects. the roaming group of volunteers that Hinterland Bush Links garners to assist landowners with weed management and revegetation as part of restoration projects on their properties. 

As our range of activities extends from Maleny in the south to Noosa and Gympie in the north, HBL has for some time envisaged establishing a second Roving Restorers group in the Noosa area. In 2020 this became possible with funding from the Noosa Council and collaboration with Noosa and District Landcare. 

Tamara Kubica was appointed to the role of Project Officer and has capably and enthusiastically engaged with landholders in the Noosa Council area as well as Land for Wildlife Officers to prioritise sites, set up a schedule of twice-monthly events, organise equipment, registrations and safety inductions and ensure activities are undertaken in a Covid-safe manner. Participants not only get to visit properties and assist with weed management and revegetation, they are learning about identification of weeds as well as native plant species, planting techniques and the principles of restoration work.

This group has been busy during 2020-2021, not only weeding and planting, but forging friendships and shared enjoyment of bush regeneration.

This project is made possible through a Noosa Council Community and Environment Project grant.
