Successful sustainability projects showcased as part of Limestone Coast Landscape Board educational program
12 December 2022
Young Environmental Leaders from across the region met recently to celebrate their learning and achievements at the annual Young Environmental Leaders Program (YELP) expo held in Robe.
With 87 students registering for this year's educational program the Limestone Coast Landscape Board has seen a steady increase in numbers over the past few years.
The end of year expo provides students with an opportunity to gather and present the sustainability projects that they have been working on during the year, celebrating their achievements and showcasing their success.
Most of the fabulous projects that were showcased in 2022 focused on improving biodiversity across our landscape. Projects included the design and implementation of indigenous gardens, worm farms and measuring the health of wetlands. Students embraced working collaboratively with their peers to ensure that the whole school was involved with the project.
St Anthony's YELP students said "we loved YELP because it was fun, and we learnt so much. We learnt about the culture of First Nations people and got to participate in some fun activities out in the landscape. Our sustainability project focused on soils and worms. It was really interesting learning about the way worms and soil impact our environment".
