Federal Member for Berowra, Julian Leeser MP, brought Melissa Price MP, Minister for the Environment, to Cowan yesterday to show her some of the Berowra electorate’s iconic bush trails.
Mr Leeser and Minister Price visited the section of the Great North Walk that extends from Cowan to Berowra.
“The bushland setting of Northern Sydney is iconic”, said Mr Leeser. “It is the distinguishing feature of our local area and one our local community works hard to nurture and protect.”
Mr Leeser said he was calling for Federal Government funding to upgrade sections of the Great North Walk that travel from Berowra to Cowan.
“Bushwalking is one of the most popular activities among locals and demand is expected to grow over the next ten years”, said Mr Leeser. “Access to well-maintained walking trails is extremely important to our community.
Melissa Price MP, Minister for the Environment, said she was greatly impressed by the commitment of the local community to the natural environment.
“The natural beauty of the Hawkesbury and surrounding National Parks is an important part of our national environmental heritage”, she said. “Our Government is committed to protecting our natural environment and investing in projects that make a practical difference to environmental outcomes.”
