Kids Teaching Kids forum

Youth Services attended the Kid Teaching Kids forum on Tuesday 6 September. The forum was held at the Yea Wetlands and was full of incredible young people teaching each other about the importance of preserving the land, water and skies.

Ten schools joined in the fun presenting and learning all things nature, biodiversity, environment, sustainability and much more. Leigh Redding was the guest speaker, sharing his amazing story of kayaking months along various waterways leading to his construction of plastic recycling machinery.

Youth Services would like to thank all of the organisers, participants and facilitators for a wonderful morning at the Yea Wetlands. To find out more check out the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network website here.
