We’re excited to share that Canopy Keepers committee member Leigh McGaghey has been appointed to NBC’s Environment Strategic Reference Group to represent both Canopy Keepers and Pittwater Natural Heritage Association [PNHA]. Leigh has a wealth of environmental knowledge from a career spent working with environmental management, trees and councils specifically and will be a powerful asset for this group.
The SRG-Environment is comprised of 12 Northern Beaches community representatives with expertise and/or experience in a range of environmental issues. The group meets bi-monthly with NBC’s Councillors, Executive and staff to discuss and provide feedback on strategies within Council’s Protection of the Environment and Environment Sustainability plans. These are often pre-emptive discussions, with Group members having input into the early stages of Council’s project plans. On behalf of Canopy Keepers and PNHA, Leigh’s voice will bring our passion, hopes and concerns for our precious and unique environment to Council. Thank you so much Leigh. We are grateful to have you there and advocating for the trees of Northern Beaches.
