Becoming an "Earthkeeper" is a vital step in the Young Environmental Leader Program (YELP). Collecting the four keys to environmental success bodes well for our landscape's future.

Young Environmental Leaders from across the region headed off to Naracoorte Caves last month for the annual Earthkeepers camps.

Being out in the landscape and connecting to nature through hands on learning provides a valuable experience to students. Students learn about supporting a healthy and sustainable environment.

The Limestone Landscape Board offer these camps as part of the Young Environmental Leaders program for Year 5 - 6 students in the region.

The camp our is the second activity of the year long program. The Earthkeeper camp is a vital step in the program as students receive 4 keys along their journey. Keys represent Knowledge, Experience, Yourself and Sharing. Students were presented with their second key at this event.

"The weather was kind to us and the students embraces the opportunity to engage in outdoor learning and fun exploration activities" said Limestone Coast landscape educator Damien Bickley.

"Students undertook a variety of activities during the camp including bush walks and outdoor theatre fully immersing themselves in the landscape."

One enthusiastic leader commented, "It has been a great experience becoming an apprentice Earthkeeper. Thank you for providing me with the knowledge to make the world a healthier place for all the flora and fauna to live."
