On Wednesday evening Susan gave a talk in the History Seminar at ANU, sponsored by the Centre for Environmental History. Thanks to Tom Griffiths and Libby Robin for organising.
On Monday Susan had the opportunity to visit Araluen, NSW with Dr Barry McGowan and Peter Smith, President of the Braidwood Historical Society. We saw sand slugs in Araluen Creek and stacked mounds of gravel on the floodplains. These are tailings from dredging in the early twentieth century. How far downstream has it gone I wonder?
