In the 1960s I attempted to get at least a section of the famous Dundas Quarry protected. This is in a special volcanic neck which contains a rock reputedly not known anywhere else on Earth. It has been visited by many famous scientists including Charles Darwin. The Dundas Valley is now on the register of the National Estate due to the results of my work and others, notably Dr. David Brannagan.

Other environmental work included the formation of the West Pymble Environmental Group, in Sydney during the 1970s. This group of people weeded the bushland according to the Bradley method and did what they could to enhance and protect the natural environment. This involved attendance at Kuringai Council meetings to monitor proposed cativity in the area.
Currently in Brisbane I am a member of the Moggill Creek Catchment Group which does similar work to enhance and protect the environment in the Kenmore region.
I am also a member of Transition Town (formerly Sustainable Surburbs)
