In this edition of Park Watch, we prepare for the colder months ahead. If you heat your home with firewood, our feature article explores the complexities and the options on sourcing it sustainably.

Our stunning cover image of humpback whales at Wilsons Promontory points to our article on whale-watching off Victoria’s coastline this winter. And for all the knitters out there? Find out how to get stitching for The Great Tree Project.

We also report on the state budget and funding for our national parks, and take an in-depth look at dealing with feral deer and development in parks.

As always we cover the most important issues concerning our national parks and other natural areas across our state.

And even though it is chilly, we still need volunteers for our two upcoming community planting events, Project Hindmarsh on 6-8 July and Grow West on 15 July!
