Would you like to spend more time with nature and better understand and learn more about your local environment?
Become one of the City of Whittlesea’s first Nature Stewards.
Nature Stewards is a 10-week program for adults run by Outdoors Victoria to help you discover more about your local environment, meet others, connect with nature and find ways to get outdoors and volunteer.
City of Whittlesea Conservation Events and Education Officer Narelle Bozinis said locations within the municipality include Quarry Hills Regional Parkland and Plenty Gorge.
“Participants will learn about local ecosystems, climate change, Indigenous heritage sites and land management practices, plant names and families, soil health, caring for native animals, the water cycle, and the many ways that connecting with nature benefits our wellbeing,” Ms Bozinis said.
The program runs from 24 April to 3 July and includes four Saturday field trips.
