Our new amenities block was officially opened on December 9th by Janelle Saffin MP Member for Lismore and Mrs Jeni Binns.
A grant from the Community Building Partnership Program of the Department of Communities and Justice and hours of volunteer work by Friends of the Gardens have enabled the completion of this facility.
Another grant from The Recovery and Resilience Grants Program 2020 enabled the purchase and installation of a rainwater tank for the facility. This will improve water delivery to the rainforest, Wilson's Park Species Garden, Hoop Pine Forest and Uncommon Plants Garden as a resilience measure in low rainfall periods and an emergency supply in case of fire, as well as a water conservation initiative.
A Thank You Morning Tea for all our guides and volunteers took place after the opening in the Environmental Education Centre at the Gardens.
