Mark Graham

CEL Workshop facilitator

“My parents gave me a sense of the land.  They would often take my sister and I off into the bush.  It’s an amazing landscape to be brought up in because there’s so much of interest and inspiration.”

Mark’s family moved to the Coffs area when he was 4 years old and he has spent most of the ensuing years deepening his relationship with this land.  After receiving an Applied Science degree from SCU Lismore he spent more than a decade researching and learning from the north coast environment.  From endangered frog research in the Tweed Valley, to conservation assessments and wetlands work for National Parks in Coffs to being the Manager of Natural Resources of the Coffs Harbour City Council, Mark has dedicated his career to the land.
