Mountain Biking on Mount Canobolas

Our Y10 Geography cohort undertook a brand-new TREE project in Week 2 this term, looking at the arguments for and against the proposed Mountain Bike development on Mount Canobolas.

The students began the day on the mountain with guest lectures from local experts, Dr Col Bower and Dr Andrew Rawson. Col and Andrew discussed the potential impacts of the development in terms of the ecology, soils, geology and the changing climate of Mount Canobolas.

In the afternoon, the students heard from World Champion mountain biker Kate Farrell and Scott Maunder of Orange City Council regarding the benefits such a development would bring to the region. It is now up to the (very confused) students to make their recommendations as to whether it should go ahead, be opposed or be modified in their recommendations to the Minister!
