Dear Licensed Tour Operator



wePlan Alpine: help guide the future of Victoria's parks



Parks Victoria has announced an innovative review of park management plans for the National Heritage Listed Alpine Country. With many of the existing management plans in the area due for review, the Alpine Parks Management Plan will include the Alpine, Baw Baw, Mount Buffalo, Errinundra and Snowy River national parks as well as the Avon Wilderness Park, Walhalla and adjacent historic parks - an area totalling over 860,000 hectares.



A project specific website called http://www.wePlan.parks.vic.gov.au has been launched with blog, social networking, user contributed galleries, PPGIS and wiki functionality. The blog will enable anyone who is interested in the parks to contribute their thoughts, ideas and opinions. A Public Participatory Geographic Information System (PPGIS) is an online mapping tool that allows you to identify the locations of your park experiences, observed environmental impacts, and special places. A wiki, a document which allows many people to collaborate on editing it, will be used to create the draft plan. Parks Victoria will complete a table of contents and some base information and then the community will be able to edit most of the plan.



A series of Open Houses will be held in 2009 at key locations in the planning area. The Open House will provide people with an opportunity to ask planners and rangers questions about the planning process and to provide feedback on what they would like to see.



With over 100 tourism and recreation businesses licensed to operate with this study area, Parks Victoria invites you all to participate. Join us at http://www.wePlan.parks.vic.gov.au.

This was touched on in the most recent issue of Wild. There was also a suggestion in the magazine that the Yarra Ranges NP might be included.
