Extreme weather, floods, draught, destroying storms, wildfire, extreme

I believe in new ways of thinking and the Byron ECO Park (BEP) can lead the way.

Some of us can’t vote in the upcoming council elections, but make BEP a key election issue.

We should note which candidates are willing to work together with a clear statement/plan on their commitment to BEP projects for the benefit to the whole shire.
