Happy Birthday - Parks Victoria

As regular readers will realise we are fans, big fans, of Parks Victoria. They seriously lead the world with Healthy Parks Healthy People.

Imagine my surprise to receive this bulletin and find that they were only 20 years old.

Thank you to our volunteers and partners
Today marks Parks Victoria’s 20th anniversary, since it was established in 1996.
Parks Victoria thanks you, our volunteers and partners, for the enormous contribution you make to parks and the Victorian community. The work you do to protect parks and engage communities is extremely appreciated and valued.
Together, we inspire the community to conserve and enjoy Victoria's unique natural and cultural heritage. Together, we care for Country and promote the value of parks and waterways for the benefit of all Victorians and their visitors.
This bulletin provides a thank you video message, and a few inspiring videos.
Hope you enjoy.
Margaret Gillespie
Acting Chief Executive

Listen to this thank you message from Minister for Environment and Climate Change, the Hon Lily D’Ambrosio MP; Parks Victoria’s Chairman, Andrew Fairley AM; and Parks Victoria’s Acting Chief Executive, Margaret Gillespie.

Watch this video showing some of the incredible places we manage and protect. In displaying the diversity of landscapes and experiences available to people in Victoria it's easy to see why we love what we do.

Over the past few months, we have heard from the community about what they value most about Victoria’s parks.
Their feedback is helping us to understand how we can best deliver outcomes for visitors, our economy, and the incredible Country we care for.
