Picnic to save forest postponed

Campaign: the Mirboo North community continues to fight to save its forest from logging.

AN event to protest the logging of forest north of Mirboo North was postponed.

The Celebrating Our Forests picnic, to be held by the forest preservation group, Preserve Our Forests Steering Committee, was postponed due to Saturday’s rain.

Those who were looking forward to attending the event are encouraged to keep an eye out for the rescheduled date, which is yet to be announced.

“Our picnic was rained out, but it has not dampened out enthusiasm to protect our beautiful forests,” Preserve Our Forests steering committee chair Marg Thomas said.

“We have updated our signs and our t-shirts, and we are looking forward to celebrating our forests at a later date.”

Activities planned for Saturday’s event included rock painting, the Tree of Life, music relating to the natural environment and a story telling of Green Man, Brown Mountain.

Guided tours were also set to take place through the nature reserve.

“We had our skilled guides ready to go. These tours would give people a better idea of the native vegetation and our wet and dry forest,” Ms Thomas said.
