While the Jimna Fire Tower Action Group (JFTAG) awaits concurrence from Forestry Plantations Queensland (FPQ), regarding the “memorandum of understanding” from the 19/01/07 FPQ/JFTAG meeting, JFTAG is focusing on planing a program of fund raising and public awareness events. It is important to note that these events are not flag waving rallies, they are not protest or demonstration forums, but are intended to be peaceful, fun, family occasions, that may inspire Mums and Dads to plan an adventure into the beautiful Conondale National Park/Jimna State Forest Area.

JFTAG has officially endorsed the following calendar of events for readers to chose, and don’t forget slip slop slap and good footwear if participating in any of the walks. While social clubs and bus groups are most welcome, JFTAG would be grateful to receive prior email notice regarding numbers wishing to facilitate the sausage sizzles for catering purposes.
