An alliance of community and environment groups
from Lake Macquarie, Wyong and Gosford.

The Community Environment Network (CEN) was formed in 1997 as an over arching body to support individuals and
groups in Lake Macquarie, Wyong and Gosford who are working for the environment.

Membership of the CEN is open to both individuals and other groups across the region.
CEN is a community based non-profit organisation that meets monthly
(except December).
The CEN employs a number of part time staff however,
most of our activities are carried out by volunteers.
