Tallebudgera Valley Nature-Culture Alliance
Tallebudgera Valley Nature-Culture Alliance (NiCA) is newly established unincorporated group of landholders who have formed for the purpose of regenerating ecological communities, as a community. Underpinning our passion to form NiCA is the desire for on-the-ground community cultural approaches that
expertise and resources,
lead to regeneration, conservation and stewardship, and
leave Tallebudgera Valley’s natural assets better for future generations.
We attach great importance to a mutual, honest exchange of ideas and opinions.
Tallebudgera Valley is a significant nature corridor connected to Springbrook along the MacPherson Ranges. The Valley corridor includes ‘substantial remnants’ and ‘critical corridors’ and encompasses land under a broad spectrum of tenures and uses.
