Discovery event and campaign action Sat 14th May, 2011
The Gardens of Stone is named because of its spectacular rock formations. Over 1088 hectares of public forest within this uniquely scenic and biodiverse area are now at risk of exclusive occupation and destruction by open cut coal mining.
Join supporters at 1.00pm on Saturday 14th May 2011 for a great campaign banner action, photo and discovery event to help protect the Gardens of Stone, in the western Blue Mountains, NSW.
We guarantee you haven’t seen such a wonderful landscape in NSW as the Gardens’ sandstone turrets known as ‘pagodas’. These formations provide a safe haven for the nests of our iconic Lyrebird and the forests below provide food for Lyrebird chicks.
Event location: Gardiners Gap Trail, Ben Bullen State Forest, NSW.
This event will be conveying public transport users to the site free of charge.
