Springfield Lakes Nature Care Group Bags A Healthy Land and Water Award

Springfield Lakes Nature Care has long been an advocate of keeping the environment clean and healthy. Their efforts didn’t go to waste as the recent Healthy Land and Water Award recognised the group’s efforts, specifically its president, Luise Manning.

There were 27 finalists across ten categories in this year’s Healthy Land and Water awards. Springfield Lakes Nature Care Group is a finalist in the Environmental Guardian Category for their Humans as Apex Predators project whilst the president was nominated for Volunteer of the Year for setting up the land and water care group and organising environmental events in 2017.

Ms Manning was awarded as Volunteer of the Year. In a surprising turn of events, this year’s Volunteer of the Year award had two winners and that includes Ms Manning.

Upon receiving the award, she thanked her community and the members of the group for helping her get the work done.

The group’s Human as Apex Predators project was dedicated to reducing the numbers of cane toads breeding in sediment ponds adjacent to a habitat for different species of native frogs.
