Peter Skilbeck

Peter Skilbeck started his working life as a primary school teacher and was particularly involved in school forestry and environmental education, including organising the school plantations for the western half of Victoria.  Having been made redundant in the mid 90s (during the Jeff Kennett era), Peter became the fire-spotter at the Mt. Tarrengower tower 19 years ago.

Peter kicked off the Looking at the landscape: an exploration of places, values and perspectives session, speaking about his experience as a fire-spotter at the Mt Tarrengower Fire Tower.
