Goodwood Primary School students gave a presentation along with James Smith, Zoologist and founder of fauNature, as to how we might not only protect our native fauna and flora but increase it within the boundaries of the City of Unley.
The presentation was at the School and was most informative. The students of this school, and indeed nearby Black Forest primary School have been leading the way in nature preservation. We can all be proud that our little neck of the woods are so proactive.
Part of the promotion covered how both schools have been helping to reduce the impacts of habitat loss along the rail corridor. This project was done in conjunction with DPTI, City of Unley and the Toys workshop at the Clarence Park Community Centre.
This project fits neatly into Councils Greening component of our Strategic Plan (from the Community of Possibilities).
Our future is in the hands of these young people, which is encouraging. I jut hope we don’t blow it before they get to influence directly.
The message has to get out there that we (you and me) are responsible for the future. We cant blame governments. Look for my next post on this.
