Paradise Park 'n' Ride - Community Wildlife Project
PARADISE PARK ‘N’ RIDE PROJECT
TUESDAY, 18 August 2020
Community Wildlife Project
Following completion of the Paradise Park ‘n’ Ride Project, a Community Wildlife Project workshop to ‘Bring Back the Butterflies’ was held with Year 5 students at Charles Campbell College.
The workshop, which was run by James Smith from fauNature, was undertaken to teach local students about the importance of urban habitat. The students learnt about how they could help enhance biodiversity and were also encouraged to become Citizen Scientists using the Butterflies Australia butterfly monitoring app.
The Community Wildlife Project was a Department for Infrastructure and Transport initiative which provided educational opportunities for local schools, community groups, residents and Paradise Interchange users via school workshops, community Wildlife Packs and resources – which aimed to encourage and equip the community with information to enhance the health of their local ecosystems.
The Community Wildlife Project for the Paradise Park ‘n’ Ride Project has now concluded and we would like to thank the community for playing a part in this important project.
Over 8,000 individual plants, which equates to more than 3,200 square metres of new garden bed form part of the landscape surrounding the new car parks.
