By Ashlea Witoslawski

There is a new addition at the Australian Botanic Gardens Shepparton helping visitors learn more about their natural surroundings.

Eight new informative lecterns were unveiled on Thursday night by Member for Shepparton Suzanna Sheed.

Funded by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, the lecterns are part of a biodiversity on-ground community program called “Breathing Life into the Bushland”, which aims to help conserve and improve the urban bushland area of the garden.

The lecterns include pictures and information about birdlife, grasses, herb shrubs, wildflowers and gliders, with the majority of the photos used provided by members of the Friends of the Gardens, Birdlife Murray Goulburn and the Shepparton Mooroopna Urban Landcare Group.

Attendees praised the quality of the lecterns as well as their positioning and the depth of information presented.

The launch was followed by light refreshments.
