This guest speaker at this weeks meeting was Tracey Muir. Tracey is the Education Officer for Nature Conservation Margaret River and works with children across the region on an evolving program that informs and engages primary school children in their natural environment in an interactive program.

Tracey presented an interesting account about her projects Our Patch and Adopt a Spot. She has been Working with students in Year 3 and Year 6 at the Augusta, Karridale, Cowaramup, Montessori, Independent and Margaret River schools who have been involved in in-class lessons, visits with scientists, wetland excursions, possum hunts, fish surveys and bird spotting. Each school has adopted a specific project that will link threats to global goals, a pilot project to eradicate feral fish, identify weeds as a major threat and replace native vegetation. Thank you to Tracey for her interesting presentation.
