Students caught up in river management fun
One Local Government Council is keeping its waterways clean and educating young residents at the same time.
More than 100 students got thoroughly muddy - in the name of science - during the launch of the City of Gold Coast’s Pimpama Catchment Study Guide.
The guide is part of a program to promote healthy waterways through education, it was developed by the Council’s Catchment Management Unit to provide information and hands-on experience for teachers and students.
The Council plan has brought together a number of schools in the area, and should be of benefit to all students in the City and to the waterways too.
The Guide has seen a successful launch with Mayor Tom Tate and Junior Mayor Zac Revere on site, who said, “This is such a fun and exciting way to learn about our environment. As a student I can relate to how important it is to have practical experience as part of your studies.”
A copy of the River Catchment Study Guide is available from the City Of Gold Coast.
