Learning from each other about the environment
19 Mar 2011
Description

Propagating seeds, building bird boxes and planting native trees ….these were just some of the ways that 325 South Australian school students learnt about looking after the River Murray and its wonderful wetlands at a recent conference. Kids Teaching Kids was coordinated by the SA Murray Darling Basin NRM Board. Another highlight for the kids was caring for turtles which were rescued from the severely drought affected Lower Lakes. Now with the return of water to the basin, the turtles will be released into revitalized wetlands. Not only did the students make a permanent positive contribution to the wetlands, they learnt first hand about the value of local action.
