A DCSCA-led consortium will run a Community Involvement Day at The Dell on April 26.
During the day, around 130 local primary school students (plus parents and teachers!) will plant dozens of native plants in the area around The Dell lookout, learning about environmental stewardship and sustainability as they go.
The Community Involvement Day is part of a programme to revegetate the area, for which the consortium received $15,000 from the Commonwealth Government's Caring for our Country Community Action Grants program. The consortium includes the Dept of Sustainability & Environment, Landcare, Bellarine Catchment Network and the City of Greater Geelong.
The Community Involvement Day was scheduled originally for June 22 2012, but bad weather forced its postponement to August 24 2012, when land slippage forced a second postponement. If anyone sees a plague of locusts on the horizon, please tell the consortium!
