Water for Red Gum Parks Forum - Bendigo - 28 October 2010

Dear Networkers,

This was posted a couple of weeks ago - but I wanted to do two things: give everyone in Bendigo and who can get there a reminder; and the letter below has just come into my email and you can make up your own minds, individually and collectively, what you think of it.  Victorians, undoubtedly, will include this in their information when making up their mind on how they will vote on November 24.


Thursday 28 October 2010


The Capital Performing Arts Centre,
50 View St, Bendigo

Victoria's magnificent red gum forests are unique wetlands and home to a huge variety of plants and animals. While they are now protected in a series of parks, they are still in grave danger. Without a secure and reliable water supply they will not survive.

Come and hear about these wonderful forests, 
why they need water and how we can get if for them.

Speakers inc:
·                      Dr Terry Hillman, former CEO of Murray-Darling Freshwater Research Centre (TBC).
·                      Prof Henry Atkinson, Monash University and Yorta Yorta elder.
·                      Dr Paul Sinclair, Australian Conservation Foundation.
·                      Kim Chalmers, Chalmers Wines.

Hosted by Environment Victoria in assoc with ACF, FoE, TWS and VNPA.
