SUPPORTING REVEGETATION AT BADEN POWELL BUSHLAND RESERVE

Baden Powell Scout Group in Frankston South is delivering bush revegetation in Baden Powell Bushland Reserve thanks to $5,000 in funding from the Dunkley Environmental Grants Program.

Federal Member for Dunkley, Peta Murphy MP met with representatives from the Baden Powell Scout Group Committee to see firsthand the benefit that this funding is having on the local environment.

“This funding has enabled Baden Powell Scout Group to purchase and plant indigenous species at Baden Powell Bushland Reserve” Ms Murphy said.

“Baden Powell Scout Group has also used this opportunity to educate scout families and friends in the value of biodiversity and the effects of invasive species”

“Our local environmental groups do such a terrific job in our community, I’m very proud to be supporting them with this funding”.

The Dunkley Environmental Grants Programs delivers funding to local groups for small-scale, on-ground projects that aim to conserve, protect and manage our environment.
