About Us - Chris and Julie
The Lithgow Environment Group seeks to preserve the balance of nature in our region.

This is especially important given the impacts of the area's industrial heritage.

The Lithgow region contains some of the most biodiverse bushland in the Greater Blue Mountains.

We would like to promote this rich natural heritage, especially given that it has often been under recognised.

Here's more about LEG - its meetings and activities
