President, Peter Greig, outlined the purpose of the group: “Friends of the Barwon is a catchment wide network of groups and individuals working to protect and restore the the long-term health of the Barwon River and its tributaries through building partnerships, empowering communities, engaging with government and providing strong and effective advocacy. The vision is for a healthy, flowing. life-sustaining Barwon River system which is valued by all the community.”
Also at the launch of the “Friends of the Barwon”, co-author Jennifer Morrow released the book she had written, with Peter Greig outlining their adventures during their walk along the River from the source to the sea.
