Cathy Levett our Green Lab Project Leader has been networking and up-skilling because increased understanding of all aspects of the environment helps to ensure that we can support young people with up to date information for their projects.
2021 -31 is the UN Decade of Restoration so I have been learning more about how the bush regenerates itself and what we can do to help. I attended a Landcare volunteer seminar where Dr Adam Cross, Restoration Ecology researcher at Curtin University, shared his research about the health benefits for people who walk in biodiverse bushland v parkland. The results show that our physical and mental health are much better if we are outdoors and in biodiverse areas. From Kimberley Aboriginal Clifton Bieundurry, who works with DFES implementing cultural knowledge in fire management, I gained much insight into caring for country regularly, spending time in your green lab space and recording what is happening particularly with the plants. Now to get my daily nature journal activated. 
I also managed to get to the new Damon Gameau film, Regenerating Australia , reinforcing my passion for working with young people to care for our country and the belief that we can regenerate it.
