Podcast No.8: Geoff Lacey (13.4 Mb mpeg-4; 56 minutes)
Geoff Lacey is a civil engineer with a long career as both a practitioner and an educator in this field. He also has an equally long career as an enviromentalist, and naturalist. He has been committed to and involved with the environmental movement, especially at the grass-roots, since the inception of its modern formation in the 1960s and 1970s. He has written numerous articles and pamphlets throughout this activity, culminating in the book Still Glides the Stream: the natural history of the Yarra from Heidelberg to Yarra Bend, this area being something of an ecological heartland for the city of Melbourne, Victoria.
