Mudgee District Environment Group

The Mudgee District Environment Group (MDEG) is based in the Mid-Western Region local government area of NSW, within the central tablelands on the Great Dividing Range.

MDEG began meeting in 1989 to highlight global issues like climate change, deforestation and recycling under the theme ‘think globally, act locally’. Our activities have included membership of Council committees, taking part in biodiversity surveys, bush regeneration, tree planting, public meetings, information stalls and supporting national and state environmental campaigns. More recently we’ve focused on the environmental and social impacts of expanding coal mines and the need to protect areas like The Great Dripping Wall from subsidence from adjacent mines. MDEG’s current focus is on promoting renewable energy. Read more about MDEG.

We welcome new members to join in our current activities aiming specifically to make Mudgee more sustainable.  Our members perform a wide range of activities so no matter what your experience is there will be some way you can contribute.
