'I had a lovely night meeting many people of the LBT on Monday, thank you for the opportunity to make a little announcement.  Visit a beautiful patch of old wet forest just 7ks from Franklin. The forest is magnificent and of high conservation value, and many in the Franklin community are working to protect it. There will be a free guided walk through Castle Forbes Forest at 10am on Sunday the 2nd of May. Immerse yourself and learn about the ecology of the forest. The walk is 1.5 kms and takes about 2 hours. Book here: https://castle_forbes_forest_walk.eventbrite.com.au.
You can also visit the forest on your own (see map below). There is a clearly tagged track from a pull out off New Road. However the top of New Road is currently closed for plantation harvesting, so we have to wait until this is finished. When you are able to visit, please stick to the tagged track.If you haven't signed the petition to protect the forest yet, you can do so by typing this url: http://bit.ly/protect-castle-forbes-forest.  Please email castleforbesforest@gmail.com for more detailed instructions on how to find the walk, or with any other questions or ideas :)'

We notice that there is a very active Facebook page with lots more information: https://www.facebook.com/Castleforbesforest/
