A unique opportunity

I CONGRATULATE Damon Cronshaw on his report about the Awabakal Nature Reserve (‘‘Weeds taking hold among the giants’’ Herald 10/5).

The reserve is truly a unique gem secluded in the heart of Newcastle.

Are readers aware that the Department of Education and Communities has an environmental education centre based there? One of 23 such centres in NSW, Awabakal EEC was established in 1976, so as well as the many walkers enjoying the area there are regularly groups of school students participating in discovery activities and learning about our local ecology.
