We support many sustainability events organised by the Bendigo Sustainability Group, including the Bendigo Sustainability Awards, Sustainable House Day and Sustainability Festival.
Summer in the Parks
Conducted over the summer period, our Summer in the Parks evening spotlight walks have proven to be extremely popular. Keep an eye out for our next Summer in the Parks environmental activity.
We are also able to provide assistance with environmental education programs by assisting with the delivery of certain activities such as in class activities, presentations to clubs and organisations, tree planting activities and specialised advice.
We support the Field Naturalist Club, which holds regular educational and community events in Greater Bendigo National Park to investigate points of interest and try bush tucker.
