We hold all sorts of events from protests and forest blockades to parties, concerts and film nights.
We're most well known for our citizen science forest survey camps, held every three months in the forests of far East Gippsland.

East Gippsland is the only place on mainland Australia with continuous intact forests from alpine to coastal environments.
The Emerald Link is a proposal to protect the region's forests by linking existing parks and reserves to create a continuous network of protected forests from the Australian alps to East Gippsland coast.
Join us for the official launch of a stunning film, shot on location in the Emerald Link last year by talented cinematographer David Franjic of Colour Chorus.
The film tells the story of the Emerald Link proposal from the perspective of local tourism operators and East Gippsland residents.
Tickets are $12, with proceeds going towards the Emerald Link campaign - Click here to get your tickets here

The Emerald Link is a conservation economy proposal that seeks to protect forest from logging whilst growing investment in nature based tourism. The proposal includes the establishment of the Sea the Summit forest trail. A multi day walking track and touring route linking the coastal town of Bemm River to one of the highest mountains in the region - Mt Ellery (Mt. Goongerah).
East Gippsland is the country of the Gunaikurnai and Bidewell and Monero people. We acknowledge the thousands of years of their ongoing custodianship of the land and pay respect to elders past and present.
We continue to seek dialogue with all Traditional Owner groups regarding their land and water management aspirations for the East Gippsland region and the Emerald Link proposal.
