Primary and secondary school teachers are being invited to assist with educational program ideas for students with the Monuments Project.
The Monuments Project aims to chronicle the historic 1979 Terania rainforest protection protests that created the foundations for what has now become the World Heritage listed Nightcap National Park.
Project co-ordinator Trevor Reece says this program could lead to more awareness of local history, possibly through school projects or curriculum activities.
If you are interested in submitting ideas or getting involved contact Reece via email: [email protected].
Help is also needed at the Channon and Mullumbimby markets to set up the Nightcap Monuments project display.
Reece says, ‘Hopefully a number of people locally will be able to volunteer a little extra time when visiting the markets to assist the community history display. The display is self-explanatory but it would be an extra asset for some volunteers to be able to relate to visitors to the area to the significance and legacy of the historic Terania and Mt Nardi logging protests and environmental protection actions.’
If you can assist the Channon Market, email [email protected] or phone 6688 6433. If you can assist at the Mullum Market/Brunswick Valley Historical Society, email [email protected] or phone 6684 4367.
The project also aims to be participating at the Aquarius Festival in Nimbin in May. If you have some time to assist with the project display in Nimbin for the festival please email Trevor at [email protected]
