      • Launch of Binna Burra’s BOOK,  an initiative of ANS Program, managed by Lynn Sawtell, edited by Jayne Fenton Keane.

      This publication provides documentation of Binna Burra’s 2022 ANS Program: from its inception, legacy and historical basis, to the scientific inquiry and artistic practices that continue to inspire the community and nurture its connection to nature. 

      Focusing on the local environment, engagement of diverse disciplines and support of volunteers that made it all possible, it provides a snapshot of creative, personal and scientific responses to Lamington National Park’s unique natural environment. 

      It is a guide to inspire Art. Nature. Science. Program leaders of the future.
