North-East Group Meet Up

Tuesday, June 02, 2020 at 06:00 PM
Zoom in Heidelberg West, Australia

Join us for the meet up of Wilderness Society North Eastern Suburbs Group. We're a group of people who love where we live and want to be part of a positive movement for nature.

 

As part of the Wilderness Society's Movement for Life (see more here), we focus on protecting and restoring the natural environment in our part of the world, encouraging a culture of connecting with nature and enjoying a life outdoors, and playing our part in the larger campaigns to create a more sustainable future. 

At this meet up we will discuss what we plan to do, how we plan to do it, and get to know each other. Please RSVP so we have an idea on numbers.

We encourage you to attend a Welcom Event or Community Organising training before attending a group meeting.

For more details contact Mallory, North East Community Organiser on 0401 430 642 | mallory.pryde@wilderness.org.au
