Walker honoured for volunteer contribution to CSIRO

Canberra Two-Day walker and former CSIRO employee Tom van Gerwen is featured in the 15 December issue of the Canberra Chronicle:
Tributes flow as stalwart marks 80th

After almost 40 years in CSIRO’s entomology section, Tom continued his work with insects by becoming the volunteer coordinator for CSIRO’s  Australian National Insect Collection volunteer program.

Tom has participated in every one of our 24 events, completing all our distance challenges!
