STEP has received an ACT Environment Grant of $9,900 for our project entitled: STEP Master Plan Stage 2 – Out Door Education Space.
A letter congratulating STEP on its success and commending our commitment to addressing environmental issues was received on 24 August 2012.
The grant will provide the opportunity for STEP to:
- Host a competition to develop the concept for the STEP outdoor shelter for education programs
- Design and publish a suite of online education program resources
- Establish training proposal and program for 2013 with ACT Education Directorate for education programs at the STEP site
The project will lead to a simple education and training program to guide practical work undertaken by students and volunteers and include training in techniques for weeding areas to enhance local indigenous plant communities, including box-gum woodland.
