Celebrate World Environment Day
World Environment Day will be celebrated in Eurobodalla on Saturday 3 June and Council’s environment education team is urging the community to take part.
Village Centre Batemans Bay will host a World Environment Day Expo that showcases local environmentally-friendly and sustainability initiatives.
Council staff will have a stall at the event, showing off their new environmental education trailer, from 9am to 4pm.
Council’s natural resource supervisor Courtney Fink-Downes said it was the fifth year Council was participating in the popular community event.
She commended Village Centre on continuing the initiative that explores how to respect and care for the environment.
“World Environment Day is a United Nations initiative that encourages worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment,” she said.
“This year we’ll be showcasing our new trailer, which has plenty of information and resources for everyone.
“Council staff will be on hand to provide advice and take bookings for our free water-wise garden visits.
“We’ll also be able to provide information about the CatBib program, composting, saving water, tips for recycling effectively, growing and maintaining a water-wise and bush-friendly garden, protecting our unique biodiversity and other environmentally-friendly tips.”
Ms Fink-Downes said the trailer was a big hit with the community on its maiden voyage to Mossy Point last month.
