“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” – Colin Powell.
Therefore, congratulations must go to the Preserve Our Forest Committee for their commitment, expertise and professionalism in their long fight to save our forests from logging.
The extensive biodiversity study, the socio-economic surveys of the businesses/tourism accommodation operators and the community surveys all supported how important our native forests are for the well-being of our community and the environment.
The ongoing monetary value of our forests to our township far outstrips the logging value.
A big thank you to all the local and neighbouring communities, former residents and tourists that willingly supported the fight to save our three coupes from logging.
The unique appeal of Mirboo North is our native forests that are located within our town boundaries: Baths Road Reserve, Rail Trail, Lyrebird Walk and Dougs Track that is located on the Dickies Hill tourist road.
These native forests are the heart and soul of our town and Mirboo North will remain a better place for the present and future generations with their preservation.
Marg Smith, Mirboo North.
