Junior Landcare

An area of land behind the Lions Den is being developed as an environmental education tool for the students at East Loddon. A Management Plan has been prepared by a past student, Wendy Last and in collaboration with staff we hope to develop landcare and environment as part of the school curriculum, giving the students an opportunity to actively learn about landcare and the natural environment. To date students in P-4 have participated in planting days and we plan to continue this in 2010 as well as establishing some monitoring sites and wildlife habitat.
