Australia’s longest-running national conservation group, the Australian Conservation Foundation is launching a group in Toowoomba.
An event to launch the new ACF Community Toowoomba Group was held at the Queen’s Park Markets on Sunday 18th April. ACF Community Toowoomba will meet monthly and run a range of activities, from guided nature walks to skills and training.
‘ACF is a reputable, longstanding group,’ Toowoomba founder Nadia Emblen said. ‘ACF has played a key role in some of Australia’s most important environmental wins, such as the formation of Landcare and protection of the Great Barrier Reef.’
‘We’re looking forward to meeting interested locals and getting to know more prospective members – everyone who loves nature and wants action to tackle climate change is invited to join – we now have over 2,000 members in our region.’
‘It’s great that everyone now has the opportunity to meet up and get involved with activities that celebrate our region and Australia’s natural heritage,’ Nadia said.
The Australian Conservation Foundation is a non-partisan group with more than 700,000 participants across the nation.
