Our banner billboard education tour has travelled from Bega to Canberra via Narooma and Batemans Bay (as per the press photo below published yesterday by Narooma News) in time for the federal govt sponsored logging and woodchip industry conference on 24 and 25 Nov 2009.
Feedback has been polite, deferential, approving and in one only case nasty.
Here are some pics from various towns raising awareness:

Moruya outside federal MP Mike Kelly's office:
Only after 4 days on the south coast at generally sympathetic tourism and service economy of Merimbula we heard some venom with a couple in a drive by verbal insult "You can stick that sign up your arse" and "You bloody idiot." Tsk Tsk.
Received from behind sun glasses and a benevolent silence as if to say have a nice day.
