With funding support from Mount Alexander Shire Council, Castlemaine Landcare Group has sent choreographer Vanessa Case and musician Andy Rigby to work with local primary school students to tell this story in movement and music.
Butterfly Celebration Day will include a Welcome to Country and the Meeting Place, local musicians, community choirs and a preschool storytelling and craft workshop by Rose Demaria. Other local environmental groups will also be there. The community can go on a guided tour of the Butterflie’s habitat, which can be booked to avoid disapointment by clicking here
Connecting Country will be having a stall all day at the event, and will be giving away some Sweet Bursaria plants to early visitors. We will also have information on woodland birds, local plants and education events.
