Three environmental groups were winners of the Coastcare Award last month as part of the 2013 Corangamite Landcare Awards.
The Bellarine Catchment Network (BCN), Swan Bay Environmental Association (SBEA) and the Borough of Queenscliff (BoQ) all received the award in recognition of the hard work and dedication to conserving the environment.
The Corangamite Landcare Awards celebrate the contributions many individuals and organisations make to the environment and the Corangamite region.
The LandCare Awards booklet indicated over five years a strong, energetic partnership project flourished between the three groups inspiring many to become involved in the protection of the Narrows Dunes Coastal Moonah Woodland.
Since 2007, BCN, SBEA and BoQ have done on-ground works and facilitated community awareness, involvement and research.
Geoff McFarlane, a volunteer from the Bellarine Catchment Network, was also inducted into Corangamites Landcare Honour Roll.
