Win a Marine Program at Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary & Education Centre in 2013
Together with Marine Care Ricketts Point Inc., Gould League is pleased to share with you an opportunity for primary and secondary schools to apply for a grant-funded marine education experience at Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary, Beaumaris for 2013 (normally valued at $725 +GST).
This opportunity is thanks to funding from the Victorian Environmental Protection Authority and Yarra Plume consortium, which is led by St Kilda Eco-Centre, to promote and educate the community about water quality issues in Port Phillip Bay.
Vote by Nov 9th for GL to win $1000 to host a "Fix It! Community Repair Workshop"
We all know about Reduce, Reuse and Recycle but what about Repair? Often we simply don't have the time, skills or resources to fix broken household items. Gould League plans to host a Fix It! Community Workshop Day at their Sustainability Centre: a free, friendly get-together where skilled volunteers guide community members through repairing (or re-imagining) their broken items!
