Healthy Rivers Healthy Communities

Having a say about the things you care about is really important to Millennium Kids.  On Sunday 12th November some of the MK Crew joined the Minister for the Environment, Stephen Dawson and Member for Bicton, Lisa O’Malley, at the community Healthy Rivers, Healthy Communities Forum. The Crew outlined their vision for a healthy river. Here are some of their tips.

1. Get out onto the river and enjoy nature – it is good for your health.
2. Get to know the plants and animals so you can monitor the health of the river.
3. Join a group, make new friends and plants some trees.
4. Let your Member of Parliament know what’s going on in a river near you and tell them why you care.

Find a nature spot near you and get to know it. Take a walk and enjoy the birds.
