The opening of Damascus College’s Murnong Trail in Ballarat with 16 informative stations was a significant achievement for the school. The 800 metre biodiversity trail winds through the college grounds and was developed to increase the school community’s awareness of the bountiful bushland and to ensure its conservation.
Indigenous plants protected on the trail include the Murnong yam daisy, Microseris walkeri. Conserving Murnong also protects the rich biodiversity of the heathy dry forest in which it grows.
The trail has been transformed into a vibrant educational experience, becoming a hands-on project where students have learnt many new things about the environment and now understand the effects of their actions on the local environment.
