This report was commissioned by the Forestry Commission as part of an environmental impact study of the Urbenville Management Area. The aims of the study were to identify Aboriginal sites, predict where other sites might be and provide management recommendations to the Forestry Commission. In this project, Claire Smith worked closely with Doug Williams of the Muli Muli Aboriginal Land Council. The survey was conducted in April 1993. We found 24 sites: 23 stone artefact clusters or isolated artefacts and one quarry. Doug also taught us about bush medicine. The recommendations included keeping some sites as a resource for local school teaching, that some artefacts be used as the basis of a teaching collection at Woodenbong Central School and that the Forestry Commission put aside certain land types as a representative sample of the Aboriginal sites that are like to exist in this area.
