Northern Rivers Guardians

 
Northern Rivers Guardians (NRG), formerly known as No Rally Group, offers our heartfelt thanks to everyone in the community who supported our successful campaign for a rally free valley in 2009-10, and the current Save Byrrill Creek campaign, in so many valuable and generous ways. These causes have drawn together a diverse group of people who are committed to preserving the community and environmental values of the Northern Rivers region. NRG is pleased to announce our official change of name to Northern Rivers Guardians. We will continue to work together with the community to support appropriate and sustainable development, community involvement in local decisions, and a safe and peaceful life for people and wildlife.
