GeckoEd – Learnscape Garden Takes Shape

GeckoEd – Learnscape Garden Takes Shape

GeckoEd’s plans to make the grounds around Gecko House into a ‘learnscape’ garden have moved several steps closer to becoming a reality. With the enthusiastic assistance of Brett Rowland from Jacob’s Well Environment Centre and six hard working Year 9 students from Coomera Anglican College, we were able to clear away a large area of grass and replace this with local native plants. The results are amazing and it’s now possible to see how the whole garden will be transformed once all the work has been completed.

Snakes Alive!

Snakes Alive!

This morning Sunday 3rd Octoer, while returning from Hervey Bay, where we went to watch the whales, we were listening to Macca on ABC Radio, when a lady called Caroline rang in with a lovely story.

She had recently moved from Byron Bay to 13 kms out of Dubbo.  It can still be cold enough there to use an electric blanket at night, and she was very surprised and alarmed to find that she had been sharing a bed with a blue-bellied black snake for 2 nights.

Gecko Ed – Environmental Education

GeckoEd offers interactive field excursions and programs for schools and the community, using a head, heart, and hand approach. These can be delivered either at your school/community gathering, or within the Gold Coast’s beautiful environs, such as the forests, mountains, rivers, estuaries and dunes.

For example, within the Currumbin Estuary, we inspire, inform and involve participants in the beach dunes,Tarrabora forests, and the mangroves in Beree Badalla.
