Celebration events from earlier in the year

In keeping with Colong Foundation traditions, we kicked off our anniversary year with a campaign launch - We had a successful forum on saving the Blue Mountains' wild rivers from the raising of Warragamba Dam wall with Bob Debus and Bob Brown on 26 March, at The Hub, Springwood was a great success. Over 400 people attended.

If you missed it, you can watch a video of the event.

Colong Foundation Anniversary Dinner - Tuesday 29 May, 6pm at Club York, with our Patron, Professor Bob Carr was a great success..! Everyone enjoyed the good humour of Alex Allchin, who was MC and Bob Carr who addressed the audience about the history of the Colong Foundation and also light heartedly ran for his life to promote the launch of his political memoir at 11am, 2 July at Dymocks in George St, Sydney.

We welcome your participation in our 50th Anniversary celebrations.
