    About Chris Gambian:

    Chris Gambian has been a trade unionist, community organiser and campaigner for over 20 years. He currently serves as Chief Executive of the Nature Conservation Council of NSW, an organisation that represents over 170 conservation organisations in NSW as an effective and powerful voice for nature.

    Chris was the Labor candidate in the Federal seat of Banks in the 2016 and 2019 elections.

    Chris is passionate about ensuring that our democracy lives up to its promise that every person can have a strong voice in the halls of power. Whether fighting to protect nature and for action on climate change, or for good jobs, a fair distribution of income and wealth, or just standing up to a bully, Chris says government should be about people.

    Most of all Chris believes that we all do better when we back each other in: standing in solidarity with each other, and to lend a hand wherever we possibly can.

    A regular on radio & TV and in newspapers, Chris is passionate about taking positive ideas far and wide in the community.

    Chris was born and raised in the southern suburbs of Sydney after his parents arrived in the St George district from India in 1975. He is married, and has two young daughters.

    APS NSW is establishing an interest group in which we share and acquire greater knowledge and skills in how to support regeneration, revegetation, restoration of NSW natural landscapes, leading to greater resilience.

    One objective of the Society is to support the protection and conservation of native flora and fauna, which can be achieved by the conservation of natural environments, habitat management and the restoration of environments that have been degraded through human activity.

    This trip

    This trip will provide those attending the opportunity to acquire a greater understanding of native plants and habitat resilience and what individuals and collective groups can do to assist.

    We have arranged to visit seven properties in the Central West; at Forest Reef near Milthorpe, Dubbo, Narromine and Toongi. Six of the owners are actively involved in restoring the natural revegetation, partially or completely on their properties. The property owners are enthusiastic to show and discuss with us what they have achieved in restoring their properties.

    Three of the properties we will visit are owned by two members of APS NSW; Jean and Basil Baldwin at Forest Reef and Andrew and Jenny Knop who have properties at Dubbo and Narromine.

    This is an exciting initiative by APS NSW, which will provide those attending a wonderful opportunity to explore the Central West of NSW and see what some of our innovative and committed property owners are doing to conserve natural habitats.

    If you are interested in joining us from 1 - 4 April, please register. We will then send you the full itinerary, locations of the properties we will be visiting and a summary of what the owners have achieved.This will also allow us to let the property owners know how many people they can expect. 

    There is no charge for this trip. However, the cost of food, travel and accommodation will be at your own expense.
