Wangaratta - Term 4, 2013 - Park Lane Nursery
The largest Student Environment Day ever was hosted by Park Lane Nursery in Wangaratta recently. Around 230 students from eight schools in the Wangaratta Area took part in the North East School Environment Day on Thursday the 31st of October. The venue basked in sunshine as thirteen presenters from NevRwaste, North East Catchment Management Authority, Park Lane Nursery, Rural City of Wangaratta, North East Water, Cleanaway, Landcare, SES, and the Wangaratta Sustainability Network offered a huge variety of hands-on activities in the areas of Waste, Water, Energy and Biodiversity. All participants brought a Rubbish Free Lunch and filled their water bottles at the North East Water refill water station - all practices providing good models for implementing sustainable living.
The students also had an extra special treat during their lunch time, being entertained by local singer / song-writer Pete Denahy as a celebration of 20 years of Water Watch.
