The Wilderness Society and our friends at Grassroots Action Network Tasmania invite you to hand out flyers and display banners near Maydena Bike Path on Sunday 26 March from 10:00am.
This activity is part of our effort to halt proposed logging in the area. This activity coincides with the international mountain biking event, The Enduro World Series. We are hoping to bring more people from the cycling community into supporting us and it is an opportunity to educate people about what is going on.
Maydena Bannering and Flyering:
- Date: Sunday 26 March
- Event Time: 10:00am start to 1:00pm
- Location: Near Fika Time Cafe, Maydena (Next to bike park)
This forest is proposed to be logged imminently by Forestry Tasmania (trading as ‘Sustainable Timber Tasmania’). Enough people walking through might just save it. Come and bear witness and enjoy the natural splendour at the same time.
Logging is due to commence in the forests next to Maydena Bike Park and Junee Cave Reserve imminently. Maydena is the gateway to the Styx region known for its spectacular forests, some of which are protected.
The logging, if it goes ahead, will tear a hole in the ecological fabric of this area, which is flanked by conservation reserves, upstream from Junee River, is full of spectacular ferns, rests upon a globally-significant karst system, and contains threatened species habitat of the Masked Owl, Tasmanian Devil, Wedgetail Eagle, Grey Goshawk and Spotted Tail Quoll.
Come see the forest for yourself and learn more about the wonderful natural values of this area!
This event will take place on the sovereign and unceded lands of the Palawa/Pakana people, the rightful owners of lutruwita/Tasmania.
