Protestors march through Wauchope for the National Forest Uprising

Letitia Fitzpatrick, 13 February 2019

The Corn Trail is currently under consideration for inclusion on the State Heritage Register. Up to 200 vulnerable Greater Gliders are almost certain to die as a result of the logging, and the endangered rare Spotted Quoll, recently seen in the area, will also be put at risk. An Aboriginal scar tree has also been identified on the steep hillside up from the trail.
