Help shape Crawney Pass National Park's future
The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is asking for community feedback on the draft Plan of Management (POM) for Crawney Pass National Park.
NPWS Ranger Catherine Watt said that input from the local community is critical to help shape the future of the Park located on the Liverpool Range.
"We encourage the community to get involved and contribute ideas. This will help us achieve the right balance between conservation, culture and nature-based activities such as bushwalking and bird watching," Ms Watt said.
The Park is home to several threatened plants and animals including a population of the rare Booroolong frog (Litoria booroolongensis) and it also helps protect the headwaters of the Isis and Peel rivers.
The reserve is important to the identity and spirituality of the local Aboriginal people of the Nungaroo and Wanaruah Nations.
"By contributing to the management plan local people can also play an important part in protecting our precious threatened species and the cultural aspects of this ancient landscape," Ms Watt said.
The draft plan for Crawney Pass National Park is now on public display and submissions are open until 20 November.
Hard copies of the draft plan can be viewed at:
- NPWS Office, 20 Hayes Street, Scone
