The ACT is home to important grasslands, woodlands and forests that are rich ecosystems with many species of regional and national conservation significance.

The EDO regularly assists community groups and individuals seeking to protect these ecosystems and therefore welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the Canberra Nature Park Draft Reserve Management Plan (2019 Draft Park Plan) and offer recommendations arising from our experiences particularly given its broad span, consisting of 37 nature reserves and 11,000 hectares.
