Aboriginal NRM

Each year, the staff at Wheatbelt NRM offer the Moorditj Boodjar Environmental Award to all primary and secondary schools throughout the Wheatbelt for students who are actively involved in Landcare or natural resource management work. These students most often share a passion for our natural environment, have made an outstanding achievement in this area or have been actively involved in projects such as tree planting, displaying great care for local animals, insects and their habitats and also showing initiatives to clean up the environment.
