Kings Park will again light up from 8 – 11 February, to tell the story of our unique biodiversity as part of Perth Festival. This year there is a new, on-ground component called Boodja Djena: Ground Beneath Our Feet, and you can be involved. Many Nats members are already doing projects that qualify. Elaine Davison’s Fungi Project is a great example. Thanks to Lotterywest, Elaine is helping people to understand more about native fungi.
To share your project and encourage others to take action to help biodiversity, post on social media using the hashtags: #perthfest #groundbeneathourfeet or email Ellie with a photo and a couple of lines about what you’ve been doing.
It can be as simple as planting a native plant on your balcony or a large project such as revegetating your whole street! The Festival will share your stories in the lead up to Boorna Waanginy. For more information and a free resource pack, visit the Perth Festival website:
Spread the word, tell your friends, help preserve biodiversity and come along to see the event—you might even meet some other Naturalists there!
