School News .....
Mrs. Rowe and Mrs. Hutchins would like to say thank you to our fabulous Eastern Hills Senior High School Students, Shane Beros and Hayley Cole from Swans in the Community, for volunteering to plant seedlings at Karakamia today. Thanks to Shane and Hayley for providing the hot dogs too!
Karakamia was A W C’s first sanctuary, protecting 268 hectares of wetlands, granite outcrops, and large areas of Jarrah, Wandoo, and Marri woodlands.
The entire sanctuary is surrounded by a feral-proof fence, which excludes cats and foxes. Karakamia is home to many species, some of which are declining or regionally extinct, providing a snapshot of what the Australian bush might have been like 200 years ago.
This year’s NAIDOC theme is “Heal Country” and as such we understand how important revegetation is. Thank you to Phil Scully and Craig Bruce who spoke to the students about the importance of revegetation and breeding programs at Karakamia. A perfect day for planting as it is now raining !!
