The Ginninderra Catchment Group (GCG) will purchase new equipment for their Junior Landcare Group (JLG) thanks to a donation from the Canberra Southern Cross Club.
The Canberra Southern Cross Club has donated membership fees from November 2009 to help the JLG, which was founded by the North Belconnen Landcare Group, buy some equipment designed for children, making it easier for them to restore areas around Ginninderra Catchment.
The GCG recognise the importance of teaching younger generations the values of reducing the impacts of human settlement on environmental systems and pursuing more systematic and sustainable environmental outcomes
Catchment Coordinator, Bonnie Reynolds, says that the donation will be a big boost for the JLG and other GCG activities.
“We are extremely grateful for the support from the Canberra Southern Cross Club” Reynolds said.
“Their donation will go towards purchasing more size appropriate equipment for our Junior Group. Currently the kids work with adult sized gear which can be very difficult for them to use.
