Mountain Journal has previously profiled Elizabeth MacPhee, who has been working to restore damaged sections of the NSW Alps since 1990.

She has worked to restore ski runs, walking tracks, grazing damage, post fire repair and damage from hydro electric schemes.

Working with Gabriel Wilks, Elizabeth produced ‘Rehabilitation of former Snowy Scheme sites in Kosciuszko National Park’ which chronicles ten years of restoration work at 200 sites within Kosciuszko National Park. These cover sites damaged  during the construction of Australia’s most iconic hydroelectric scheme, where work is showing substantial progress and is contributing to the protection of the parks internationally significant ecosystems.

Although this is a few years old, it is worth a read for anyone with an interest in ecological restoration in the Australian Alps.
