Save Lake Tuggeranong

Call for action to Save Lake Tuggeranong

A recent community forum called for government and community action to solve pollution problems in Lake Tuggeranong.

The forum, held at the Tuggeranong Community Centre, was jointly hosted by the Southern ACT Catchment Group (SACTCG), Concerned Residents for West Kambah (CROWK) and the Tuggeranong Community Council (TCC).



Dr Chris Bourke MLA, Member for Ginninderra, today presented Landcare awards to the ACT community celebrating our local environment.

The Landcare Awards showcase and recognise the efforts of members of the community involved in natural resource management. 

"The ACT Landcare Awards and ACT Landcare Week provide recognition for the exceptional work carried out by the many hundreds of Landcare workers and volunteers in the Territory," Dr Bourke said.
