EDOWA News June 2017
Welcome to the June edition of the EDOWA News.
We recently visited the Helena and Aurora Range with the Wildflower Society of WA as part of the work we have been doing with several conservation groups to protect this magnificent range from a mining project. You can read about this work here. We are next in the mining Warden’s Court on 30 June. Thank you to the Wilderness Society for creating this video of our trip here!
The end of the financial year is almost upon us, which means that it is time for us to ask existing EDOWA members to renew your membership. If you aren’t already an EDOWA member this is also a perfect time to become one. Membership forms can be found online here.
While we welcomed news from the State and Federal governments that some funding would be restored to the community legal sector, to date EDOWA has not yet been included in any funding package. We continue to encourage the Attorney General and other Ministers to restore some EDOWA funding to ensure our survival beyond the end of this year. This also highlights how vitally important it is for the community to show support by becoming members or donating to ensure there is an independent community legal centre giving voice to the environment.
