Green Army graduates


The May intake of the Green Army team has graduated after completing six months of environmental conservation work on the Surf Coast.

The Federal Government funded Green Army initiative supports the hands-on environmental training and development of youths aged between 17 and 24.

The  Soapy Rocks rehabilitation was the largest project the Green Army group worked on and would not have been possible without the man power to assist GORCC and environmental volunteers at this popular location.
