We all have the power to help keep our coastlines, rivers, lakes, swamps, creeks, floodplains, billabongs and estuaries clean by diverting rubbish from our waterways. This can be done with regular clean-ups, picking up litter when you see it, and changing our behaviour such as limiting our use of single-use plastic. Junior Landcare have created a Learning Activity for children at home, at school or with a youth group or Coastcare group host their own waterways clean-up.
Here is a sneak peek at an activity that will help wildlife in times of extreme heat. Please try it out and we would love to hear how it goes.
Huon Valley Roamers Landcare began in 2014 with a vision to instil in every generation a love of caring for the environment, particularly amongst children.
Beneficial bugs play a critical role in contributing to a healthy ecosystem by pollinating our food and flowers, controlling pests and preventing pollution.
I would like to find out something about swallows: we have noticed that they return to the same nests each year, but there must be younger birds that have no nest. Where do they sleep until they have built their new nest? – Nefeli
