Help Shape Future Of State Forests In Central Highlands


The Eminent Panel for Community Engagement was established in 2021 to partner with Traditional Owners and engage with the Victorian community about the future of state forest areas following the end of native timber harvesting. Now, they are considering the values and future management of the Central Highlands state forests.

The Panel is set up specifically to talk with people and organisations to understand values and priorities for forests in the Central Highlands. This includes talking with local communities about forests in their local area. These conversations will inform recommendations to the Victorian Government on future use and management of state forests.
