The Conservation Council ACT Region is the peak environment body in the ACT.

We advocate, campaign, and engage with the community to protect our local environment.

Join Walk the Border ACT

Join us in the adventure of a lifetime on Walk the Border ACT!

Conservation Council President Rod Griffiths is leading a 306 km walk to circumnavigate the ACT border in October 2019. The 20 day walk will cross a variety of local ecosystems, from majestic alpine forests to diverse wooded and grassy lowlands.

We invite you to join in the walk for one day or a few days. If walking isn’t your thing but you would like to support the work of the Conservation Council, we encourage you to sponsor the walkers!

Although we welcome the ACT Government’s proposal to tackle single-use plastics, the government needs to take more decisive action on plastic waste and lead community discussion.
