The Avon Valley Environmental Society (AVES) wanted to make local school children and community members aware of the significance of the Mt Stirling site. The students were also taken to view the Caroline Gap and were told of the significance of the Yilgarn and Lockhart subcatchments of the Avon river and its importance in the water quality of the Avon River. The site contains significant and rare flora and fauna as well as being a place of natural attractiveness. Students and community members were exposed to experts in environment, catchment and Aboriginal matters. Four schools participated, St Josephs Primary and Secondary Students, Avonvale Primary School and West Northam Primary School. Project materials were prepared by the AVES.
