Bellarine Bayside is encouraging our local communities to come along to our upcoming Community Environment Days and other environmental interest days such as film nights. Our first event kicks off on Sunday 9 July (coinciding with NAIDOC Week) at the Miller Boys Memorial in St Leonards from 10am to 1pm.
Each year Bellarine Bayside partners with local, environmental organisations (Bellarine Catchment Network and the Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre in 2017) to educate our primary school children on their local coastal environment and encourage the kids to become environmental heroes for the Northern Bellarine.
Breathe in the beauty and remember that by keeping our planet healthy, we keep ourselves healthy too.
In recognition of this year’s World Environment Day theme ‘explore the nature you love’, Bellarine Bayside is asking our community to get acquainted with your environment and explore the amazing species in your everyday world!
