Forest Ecology Camp – 2019

Botanical nerd’s DIY delight – 2019

This Easter there will be an informal DIY nerd’s botanical ecology camp as we’re not holding the traditional Forests Forever Easter Camp. This low key affair will be with the lovable East Gippsland forest expert, David Cameron.

Goongerah Camp Ground  ~  April 19th – 22nd.
BYO all food and treats, spare fuel, bushwalking gear, camping gear, warm bedding, etc (please no dogs or bongos).

BYO food and fix your own meals. You can even organise your own walks and drives if you’d like but David will be happy to lead walks and impart his boundless knowledge.

Time management will be your own responsibility. There will be no time-tyrant (Jill) on duty this year so getting back to camp before midnight will be a collective responsibility if going out with David. 🙂

Plant nerds will especially love the walks and presentations. There will be casual time with David Cameron to talk about anything from epicormic shoots of eucalyptus pauciflora to bureaucratic botanical history to home grown philosophy.

EEG has decided that with two new legal cases looming this year our capacity would be best used to focus on preparing these cases.  

Registrations are not necessary  but those who’ll be touring with the East Gippy Guru, David Cameron are asked to donate to East Gippsland’s Forest Fund (tax-deductible) that will help us with our upcoming work.

There might be an organic farm tour, Brown Mountain old growth walk, forest campaign update and organic produce for sale. This camp will have no program as such so will be very organic. But one thing is for sure – you’ll be mixing with fellow forest devotees, experiencing some beautiful forests and learning a lot of new info about East Gippsland’s forests.

  1. My husband and I would like to come to this. Is it possible to come in a motor home?


    1. Hi,
      as the campground is very small, we prefer people camping with their cars and motorhomes (not too large we hope) park in the adjoining farm paddock (and for fire safety, no campfires).
