The Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority advises that the Community Education Grants 2009-10 round is now open.

Supported by the Broken Goulburn Implementation Committee, the grants promote and support community-led projects in awareness and education of catchment health and related environmental issues. Grants of up to $4,000 are available for community groups, schools and other non-profit groups.

Now entering its fourth year, the Community Education Grants program has supported many valuable community projects. Rhiannon Apted, Dryland Projects and Community Coordinator said, " Examples of past projects include: developing and printing the Restoring riparian health in the upper Sevens Creek booklet; producing and installing detailed signage identifying local indigenous plant species in the Highlands area; producing threatened species cards for students to support school learning days; and school bus tours of significant environmental sites, including salinity trails."

Your community group or school is encouraged to apply for funds to support educational projects that promote and increase awareness of catchment health and related environmental issues. Projects that develop partnerships between the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority and your group are encouraged.

Applications close on Friday, 31st July 2009.
