Rogers Reserve nominated for Environment Award

We are very excited to announce that the Friends of Rogers Reserve has been nominated for an Environmental Award with the Condamine Alliance.

The Group has been nominated for their commitment to educating the public on the environmental significance of the Charles and Motee Rogers Bushland Reserve at Highfields, in particular for the informative guided plant tours through the reserve, hosted by plant expert Trish Gardner. Condamine Awards recognise and celebrate outstanding contributions to natural resource management in the Condamine catchment. 

We are very honoured to be nominated. Fingers crossed! Finalists are announced on the 12th of September. More information on the awards here...

AWARDS UPDATE - 17th September 2014

While we didn't make the final cut for the Condamine Alliance Awards - we are thrilled to see the Friends of Franke Scrub on the Finalists list! For those of you who don't know much about this area - Franke Scrub is a similar area to the Charles and Motee Rogers Bushland Reserve and is located on the Western Side of Highfields and is the only other area of remnant bushland vegetation of its size in the local area. The Friends of Franke Scrub have been looking after this area for many years and have had their own wins with Council to save this biodiversity area in the past - the nomination is well deserved! If you would like to find out more about Franke Scrub and it's location please view their blog:
