Gudgenby Bush Regeneration Group
The Gudgenby Bush Regeneration Group (GBRG) was established in May 1998 to lobby for the removal of the Boboyan pine plantation in Namadgi National Park and to rehabilitate the area. Logging began in 1997 and the last piles of pine slash were burnt in April 2005, completing what the 2003 bushfires failed to do. GBRG celebrated its 20th anniversary in July 2018 and continues to have regular work parties to replant native species and remove weeds and surplus fences.

NPA ACT remains closely associated with GBRG. Most of GBRG’s participants, including all committee members, are also NPA members. For further information, contact
