The Central West Environment Council
Central West Environment Council (CWEC) is an umbrella organization representing conservation groups and individuals in central west NSW working to protect the local environment for future generations.
Groups from all over the central west, such as Dubbo, Mudgee, Rylestone, Capertee, Bathurst and Orange are represented.
We meet quarterly, usually on the first Sunday of the month at various locations around the region.
FRIDAY 26th August 2016 TALK ON CWEC AT BATHURST
Cilla gave a
talk on CWEC at the Rahamim Centre, Bathurst 5.30 - 7.30 as part of the
Green Drinks activities. This was an interactive session, with a survey completed. As soon as I get some time, I'll analyse the results and put them on the website. There was quite a good crowd there with lots of interesting ideas and some hopeful suggestions in respect of a closer partnership with groups such as the Rahamim Ecology Centre. Thanks to the generous hosts for an excellent evening (especially the very delicious non-alcoholic beer!).
MARCH 2015: A RARE WIN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
The Drip and Corner Gorge near Mudgee will be added to national parks estate and saved from coal mining. The hyrology of the area is still under some threat and Moolarben Coal will be required to keep an eye on this into the future. Congratulation to Bev Smiles and the environment groups (including us, but particularly the Mudgee District Environment Group) and the locals who helped save this iconic area.
