Bush Fire Recovery - Evolving in the Presence of Fire
The Mundaring Environmental Art Project provides an opportunity for primary school children to engage with local and global environmental issues and promote a positive message about the importance of nurturing and protecting the earth. This display features hundreds of responses from local Primary school children who have explored the effect of bushfire on native flora and fauna to come up with suggested solutions for recovery and future environmental practice.
This project is a joint initiative of Mundaring Arts Centre, Shire of Mundaring’s Environmental Advisory Committee, Mundaring Community Branch, Bendigo Bank and the Department of Culture and the Arts. A selection from the images on display will be translated into banners to adorn the Mundaring Memorial Rose Garden for the coming year.
