Drains are for rain action learning kit


The Rockhampton Region has a direct connection to the Great Barrier Reef via the Fitzroy River. What we do in our yards, on our streets and across the landscape affects the health of our local waterways and the Reef.

Rockhampton Regional Council’s ‘drains are for rain’ action learning kits help to raise awareness about the importance of protecting our waterways. By sharing the simple message that ‘drains are for rain’, we are reminded about the connections between the stormwater drain, creek, river and Reef and the simple actions we can take to reduce our impacts at home, at school and across the broader community.

Schools in the Rockhampton Region can borrow an action learning kit from Rockhampton Regional Libraries. The kit contains everything schools need to deliver a successful drain stencilling project. To book an action learning kit, simply phone 07 49368265 or pop into the Rockhampton Regional Library on Bolsover Street.

This action learning kit is proudly provided by Rockhampton Regional Council, with support from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (Reef Guardian Stewardship Grant 2019).
