FRIDAY 26th August BATHURST
Cilla is giving a talk on CWEC at the Rahamim Centre, Bathurst 5.30 - 7.30 as part of the Green Drinks activities.   This will be an interactive session as I am hoping for some feedback on what the attendees expect from a regional environmental group such as ours.

The Central West Environment Council

Bug Watch 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.

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.

Members of the Central West Environment Council prepare regular reports on activities undertaken during the year.

On June 15 2014, CWEC organised a free community workshop in Orange run by the Environment Defenders' Office for people to learn to participate in a more targeted way in the decision-making process. It was a great success.

On the weekend of  May 4-5 2013, CWEC hosted and co-sponsored the Nature Conservation Council's Regional Environment Conference in Bathurst.
