Ollie helps celebrate World Environment Day 2007

Celebrating World Environment Day on 3 June, Moorabool Shire Council hosted the very successful event MooraFest with a focus on a sustainable environment.   A temperature range of 8 – 15 degrees did not dampen community enthusiasm for this event on the Council lawn in Bacchus Marsh, with over 400 people attending.

Making music at MoraFestSustainable water and energy, catchment, environment, a energy efficient vehicle and live birds of prey were supported by live performance, African drumming, Ollie, The Connies and Rob Gell as guest speaker.  Schools also contributed to the event with an environmental art display in the shopping centre.
