Engaging with the next generation of green-thumbs
Here in the Adelaide Hills we're lucky to have an environment full of unique plants, animals and micro-organisms that provides the perfect opportunity for kids to learn how to care for their natural assets.
Recently, our biodiversity team has had the opportunity to share knowledge and engage with local school and kindy children.
The team were invited to speak to the Woodside Preschool kids and staff during their bush kindy at Woodhouse Adventure Park about our precious natural environment and the native animals we are lucky enough to share it with. The sunny morning was full of environmental exploration and keen learners!
Council also celebrated Nation Tree Day with year 5-6 students from Aldgate Primary School by continuing restoration work along Cox Creek in Bridgewater that originally started with the school in 2019. The students joined Council staff to plant 200 native plants and grasses by the creek adjacent to the new footbridge at the Oval and carefully protecting them using cardboard biodegradable tree guards.
It's great to see these young green-thumbs taking pride in their local environment!
