Bonus for early bookings
Gib Wettenhall (GDTA) has very kindly and generously offered to donate a large quantity of a pictorial book of the Grampians he produced and published ten years ago. Titled Gariwerd – Reflections on the Grampians, it is a series of beautiful photos taken by landscape photographer and ecologist Alison Pouliot along with a number of essays by Gib himself. Together, the images and essays reflect on how we might explore, appreciate and enrich our reading of this remarkable landscape.
A copy of this lovely book will be included with each registration (one per person/couple) while stocks last. First in – best dressed!
We thank Gib Wettenhall very much for his extremely generous donation. The Federation Weekend in the Grampians seems like the perfect event for such a gift like this. We are sure people will be very appreciative in receiving such a book.
