    Students from six schools across the region spent a day learning about wildlife and the environment.

Primary school students from across the region descended on Dip Bridge at the Broken Creek last week to learn about their local environment.

The Goulburn Broken Catchment Authority event included workshops on fish, frogs and parks, bugs and cultural awareness, with students from Katandra West, Congupna, Dookie, Tallygaroopna, Invergordon and Lemnos primary schools attending.

Goulburn Broken CMA acting riparian and river channel manager Jim Castles said it was an excellent day.

‘‘(They were) just typical country kids, they got right into it and really enjoyed all the activities,’’ he said.
