Dr. Lea Jellinek: ‘Why we need to Save the Rubicon Forest?’ at the Kathleen Syme Library, 251 Faraday St, Carlton for 7 - 9:30pm, Wed 14 April 2021.
You are invited to come with Lea on a journey into our precious forest on Dry Creek Hill, above Snobs Creek Waterfall.
This area, just above the spectacular Snobs Creek Waterfall, has one of the most pristine and intact forests in Murrindindi Shire. Local campaigners want to see them removed from logging schedules and declared an extension of the existing "Snobs Creek Wildlife Reserve”.Read more
The current VicForest Timber Release Plan shows logging of native forests in the Central Highlands is scheduled to occur in areas very close to recreational roads and tracks where people regularly enjoy hiking, horse riding, cycling and four-wheel driving.
These will impact on a large number of areas, including Kinglake, Narbethong, Warburton, The Acheron Way between Narbethong and Warburton, a section of The Bicentennial National Trail near Toolangi, Black Range Tourist Drive between Toolangi and Murrindindi, Snobs Creek Road in Rubicon, and Big Pats Creek.
The Central Highlands rely on nature based tourism for much of its economic activity and local employment. Visitors are not interested in walking or riding through a logging coupe.Read more
