ABOUT 30 people spent a lovely peaceful day in the Upper Florentine forest last Saturday. This was the second successful information day in recent weeks organised by local enthusiasts to promote awareness of the forest. The day again generated great interest and discussion amongst those who attended, who expressed a wish for more such days to be held on a regular basis.
We are thrilled with the positive responses we have been getting to these community days. We plan to have a series of information days over the summer, with guest speakers educating us on a variety of topics such as the geology of the area, the European and Aboriginal heritage, the flora and fauna of the forest, and looking at potential tourism strategies for the region. The beauty of the forest, together with the encouraging feedback we have from all new visitors, is inspiring us to keep going.
