Quotes, attributed to Charlie Bisset, District Manager, Parks Victoria:
“The team at Parks Victoria is a group of knowledgeable and passionate people who not only care for our environment, we also live in and contribute to the communities in which we work in.
I’m thrilled to have joined the team and each week that passes I am learning more about the many parks and reserves, just how important they are, and the complex job we have in managing them for now and future generations to enjoy.
Many of us choose to live where we do because of the beautiful natural surroundings – much of which is parks and forests. Parks Victoria works hard to serve these communities and protect these beautiful places.”
