On Thursday 11 April (during school holidays) Venturers are invited to a special environment day at Jells Park, Glen Waverley. Parks Victoria, Birdlife Australia and Youth Affairs Victoria are working with Scouts Victoria, to host a day for Venturers to launch their Venturer Level Environment Badge. The day will focus on biodiversity monitoring including habitat assessment and bird surveying.
The day will run from 10.00AM to 3:00PM giving Venturers approximately half the time required for the badge. To complete the remaining hours Venturers will be provided with information for Friends group activities, such a tree planting and weeding, in their local area.
Meet at Madelines Restaurant at 10.00AM. Be prepared for all weather conditions, bring a water bottle, your Venturer passport and a pen. Lunch and all other equipment will be supplied.
If you are coming by car enter via the Waverley Rd entrance. There are also many bike paths to Jells Park and buses run along Fern Tree Gully Road.
