Merici College awarded ACT Environmental Grant for Biodiversity Restoration Project

Sustainability at Merici

Wonderful news has been received acknowledging the work for sustainability and the environment that is ongoing at Merici!

The ACT Environmental Grants Program which helps to strengthen community participation and engagement in environmental projects through community led initiatives, has awarded Merici College’s Biodiversity Restoration Project a grant of $23,800. The grant will expand the existing project which is aimed at rewilding a section of the oval along Wise Street with species from the Yellow Box-Blakely's Red Gum Grassy Woodland, one of Canberra's key ecosystems.

It is hoped that this fragment of vegetation, once established, will provide connectivity across the landscape between Black Mountain and Mount Ainslie.

Thank you so much to Minister Vassarotti, the ACT Environmental Grants Program, Alice Hathorn from the ACT Urban Woodland Rescue and the team at Merici.
