Tribute to Ron Clarke, AO, MBE

Our Chief Executive, Brendan Foran, pays tribute to the Olympian and former President of Greening Australia Queensland.

Ron Clarke was a wonderful Australian, a great ambassador for our nation and a passionate advocate for conservation and landscape restoration.

He was the Chairman of Greening Australia Queensland from 1998 to 2000; he will be sadly missed by the Greening Australia family and the entire Australian community.

He led by example; he always advocated for the environment and through his tireless efforts the Greening Australia Centre at Brisbane’s Norman Park was built in July 2001.

We at Greening Australia are eternally grateful to have had Ron Clarke as a friend and colleague.
