Interpretive Signage at Theodore Grinding Grooves

On the 6th May, as part of the ACT Heritage Festival,  the SACTCG unveiled our new interpretive sign for the grinding grooves site at Theodore.

Funds for the project were provided through the ACT Heritage Grants.

Ngunawal custodian Wally Bell, who was instrumental in the project, launched the sign to the public.

Hopefully the sign wil help to educate visitors about the wealth of Aboriginal cultural sites across the city, and encourage them to respect the site.

Deductible Gift Status for the SACTCG

The Southern ACT Catchment Group has recently been informed that they were successful in applying to the Department of Environment for Deductible Gift Recipient Status. This means that if a person makes a donation over $2, that becomes tax deductible.

We have established a fund 'The Southern ACT Catchment Environment Fund' into which public monies will go.

This is great news as it allows members and the public to contribute to community projects which are designed to improve parts of the southern catchment which need some extra care.
