Topic of Taste

FAMILIES gathered at Kamarooka to learn about the impact of salt on the
environment during Saltwatch Week. North Central Waterwatch, Bendigo Family Nature Club and Northern United Forestry Group hosted the family day at Kamarooka on Sunday 22 May 2011. Children were able to explore, taste and see first-hand the impact of salt on the environment.North Central CMA Waterwatch Coordinator Cass Davis said “Salinity can cause a number of problems including the reduction of land productivity, and reduced water quality, which not only affects aquatic life but also reduces the supply of fresh, quality water for stock and domestic use.”
