A joint project between Rotary and The Murray-Darling Freshwater Research Centre.
2013 DATES SOON TO BE ANNOUNCED!!
Where? Fantastic new venue tried and tested in 2012: Calperum Station near Renmark South Australia
MDFRC Mildura has accepted an exciting invitation from Rotary to relocate the Health of the River Youth Forum (HOR) to Calperum Station in the Riverland (SA) and partner with Australian Landscape Trust (ALT) staff in the delivery of a revised 'freshwater ecology and water management issues' program for year nine and ten students from across the lower Murray Darling Basin.
For fifteen years MDFRC Mildura and Rotary have worked together to run a student forum based on hands-on learning opportunities around freshwater ecology and management. Rotary Clubs in South Australia are forging a strong relationship with ALT including collaboration on environmental education programs utilising the facilities at Calperum Station. Calperum Station offers access to floodplain and wetland habitats, Murray River frontage and nearby examples of river regulation and water use for primary productivity, existing ecological monitoring programs, dormitory accommodation and catering facilities, all of which are key to the program of the four day HOR forum.
For any enquiries about the Health of the River System Youth Forum you can contact Michelle Kavanagh at The Murray-Darling Freshwater Research Centre in Mildura via email email@example.com
