You have probably signed the petitions, sent letters to State and Local Government, joined an access organization and donated to various funds. Now is your chance to have your say on the new Grampians Landscape Management Plan. PV have announced workshops open to the public at various locations in the Grampians district and North Melbourne next month.
This is a once in 15 year opportunity for rock climbers to have a say in how our sport will be managed in one of the greatest climbing areas on earth. There are limited spaces – book your place NOW! The more climbers that attend these events the more we have a majority say in this plan. RSVP at Engage Victoria website here.
Below is the official invite from Parks Victoria which gives details of dates of these workshops.
