The Enviro Expo will showcase environmentally friendly and sustainability initiatives as a part of global celebrations for World Environment Day.
First held in 1974, World Environment Day (WED) has become an international focus for awareness and action for the protection of the environment, with 143 countries participating in WED events.
The Eurobodalla’s Enviro Expo will include: information on recycling, nature, and composting; and enviro-craft and face-painting for the kids, at The Village Centre, Batemans Bay, on Saturday, June 3.
The Eurobodalla Shire Council’s environment education team will also attend the expo, holding their stall from their environmental education trailer, from 9am.
The council’s natural resource supervisor Courtney Fink-Downes said it was the fifth year they were participating in the event.

“World Environment Day is a United Nations initiative that encourages worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment,” Ms Fink-Downes said.

“We’ll also be able to provide information about the CatBib program, composting, saving water, tips for recycling effectively, growing and maintaining a water-wise and bush-friendly garden, protecting our unique biodiversity, and other environmentally-friendly tips.”
Ms Fink-Downes said they would be showcasing the council’s new enivornmental trailer, which was a big hit with the community on its maiden voyage to Mossy Point last month.
