Action Packed Action
around Gold Coast's catchments
An Action Packed Action August is here and before no time, we will be celebrating this years achievements at Country Paradise Parklands. Though, before then we have action packed action to carry out around Gold Coast's catchments.
First up, last month we saw the launch of the City of Gold Coast's 2014/15 Naturally GC program. It is great to see more and more activities advertised, and we must add diversity too. From nature photography to bushwalking and tree planting, there is plenty to do and see around Gold Coast catchments. The best part about it is that it is free too! So, take the time to trail through the brochure by following the link.
We also saw one of our member groups, Friends of Rainbow Society awarded with a heritage and culture award at Keep Australia Beautiful's Clean Beaches ceremony held at Currumbin Beach. The Gold Coast played host for the ceremony being last years overall award recipient for Australia's Cleanest Beach. A big congratulations to the Northern Territory beach of Nhulunbuy for taking out Australia's Cleanest Beach award for 2014.
Moving forward, in the coming month, many groups will set their grove for the next 12months as the City's People's Budget is now confirmed - with $35,080,71.00 for nature and conservation, see link. With the Commonwealth Games and Cultural Precinct taking priority, we must continue to encourage the 'greener' initiatives to ensure such major projects integrate nature and conservation.
We must leave it here to share other news that is happening across Gold Coast's catchments, and remember to follow us and share your news via our social media channels - Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Catch up soon,
The Gold Coast Catchment Association.
