On Sunday 18 August 2013, about 60 people gathered in the rain at Hobart’s Botanical Gardens to pay tribute to the conservation achievements of the late Helen Gee.
Helen was an activist from the campaign to save Lake Pedder (1967 to 1972) to the present.
She was Convenor of the Lake Pedder Restoration Committee until ill health forced her to withdraw from all her community activities in 2010.
To mark the occasion, Geoff Law has written an account of Helen’s remarkable life, her achievements and her contributions to the protection of Tasmania’s natural and cultural heritage – see Tasmanian Times.
Helen Gee was a remarkable person and a great Tasmanian. She is sorely missed by her friends in the Lake Pedder restoration movement and in the broader community.
Also on Helen’s life and achievements, see the obituary.
