Ku-ring-gai’s History of Tree Lovers

Join this guided heritage walk of Gordon that tells the history of the many tree lovers in Ku-ring-gai - and in particular the history of the Ku-ring-gai Tree Lovers Civic League formed by National Trust founder and Gordon resident Anne Forsyth Wyatt (1885-1961).

This Friends of Ku-ring-gai Environment (FOKE) walk around Gordon will celebrate the remarkable achievements of Annie Wyatt and the Ku-ring-gai Tree Lovers’ Civic League that began in her Gordon home and led to the creation of the National Trust (NSW). This guided heritage walk will showcase the life of Annie Wyatt and how and why she formed the Ku-ring-gai Tree Lovers’ Civic League in 1927. Learn how Ku-ring-gai’s trees and bushland valleys inspired not only Annie Wyatt, but generations following, to become lifelong advocates for nature. Celebrate these tree lovers’ legacy and why their passion for trees is more important than ever!
