Guide to the environment

Launching the booklet at Ocean Grove Pavilion. 176024

The launch of the Ocean Grove Environment Booklet – Discover The Real Ocean Grove was held at The Pavilion on 7 December.
Attended by 90 representatives of local environment and community groups, it was a celebration of the environmental values of Ocean Grove.
Councillor Stephanie Asher launched the booklet and described it as “a great example of what can be achieved when a community works together and important in ensuring we all understand the value of our environment and the biodiversity it supports”.
Program manager Matt Crawley said the booklet was three years in the making and included contributions from dozens of community individuals and 10 community groups and organisations.
Financial support for the project was received from City of Greater Geelong, Barwon Coast, Ocean Grove Connected Communities, Ocean Grove Coastcare, Rotary Ocean Grove, Dept of Environment Land Water and Planning and Ocean Grove Camera and Photo.
The booklet invites you to discover the natural values that Ocean Grove has to offer.
From old growth woodlands and wetlands, through to coast and estuary. There is so much to discover.
To obtain a free copy head to the Ocean Grove Library and CoGG Information centre or your local cafe to where booklets have found their way.
