Victoria's Forestry Heritage

A History of Management


"The past is never fully gone. It is absorbed into the present and the future. It stays to shape what we are and what we do."
Sir William Deane, 1996

 

FORESTS COMMISSION RETIRED PERSONNEL ASSOCIATION (VICTORIA) Inc.

 

Founded in 1979, the Association brings together former employees of the Forests Commission who still retain their love of the bush, are proud of their achievements and enjoy the camaraderie of their former associates:

  • to enable them to meet at regular intervals to renew old friendships, discuss and take action on matters of mutual interest and partake in social entertainment
  • to establish and maintain Forestry Heritage Museums
  • to collect, preserve and maintain forest memorabilia for the benefit of the general public and future generations

Membership to the Association is open to any retired former employee of the Forests Commission.
