THE Baden Powell Scout Group has received a grant to plant indigenous vegetation at Baden Powell Bushland Reserve.

The group received the $5000 funding boost through the federal government’s environmental grants program.

Dunkley MP Peta Murphy said “this funding has enabled Baden Powell Scout Group to purchase and plant indigenous species at Baden Powell Bushland Reserve. Baden Powell Scout Group has also used this opportunity to educate scout families and friends in the value of biodiversity and the effects of invasive species.”

“Our local environmental groups do such a terrific job in our community, I’m very proud to be supporting them with this funding,” she said.
