Autumn 2017 Clean Green

Have YOU read the latest edition of Alexandrina Council’s Clean Green newsletter? The autumn 2017 edition of Clean Green is available now!

A wonderful community project has come to fruition with the Point Sturt and Districts Landcare Group opening the Point Sturt Landcare Reserve after years of revegetation and care. It is hoped that the reserve, which is open to the public, will become a thriving native floral reserve over time.

Eight recipients are awarded Community Environment Grants for projects that will enhance biodiversity and achieve local environmental outcomes.

Individual, organisation and town recipients of KESAB awards have also been recognised for their hard work and effort to improve their community.

Little Corella inundation is a major concern to the community; Alexandrina Council are continuing to visit a variety of methods in an attempt to manage a growing, disruptive population.

The Climate Change Adaptation Plan for the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu and Kangaroo Island has been released to the public. The plan is a collaborative effort between 6 local councils and addressed the community risks and limitations when it comes to climate change in an effort to grow the community’s resilience.

The Fleurieu Aquatic Centre (FAC) opened its doors on Saturday 25 March. Swimming pools are big energy users, so it is important to recognise the numerous sustainability initiatives that were implemented to ensure the Centre is as environmentally sustainable as possible.
