Bermagui Forest Tour

ONE PAGE FLYER | FOUR TO A PAGE FLYER for distribution please.

Come on a guided tour of the area that was logged in 2008-09 and see that a forest is more than just trees to log. See the degradation that has occurred and then visit the area that is soon to be logged. Hear about real forest ecology, not the PR spin that you get from Forests NSW.
