Southern Tablelands Ecosystems Park opened at the arboretum

By johnboy - 21 March 2011 0

Chief Minister Stanhope has announced the official opening of “Stage 2 of the Southern Tablelands Ecosystems Park (STEP) garden at the National Arboretum”.

This is intriguing because the arboretum is not open, although apparently you can do openings for parts thereof. Also a park garden is a new concept which one suspects slipped past the acronym team. Mr Stanhope appears to be writing his own media releases with this literary flourish:

“STEP has a vision, an applaudable vision, to create a community-based regional botanic garden, education and ecosystem recovery centre specifically for Canberra and the surrounding Southern Tablelands,” Mr Stanhope said.

So there you go.
