“We know our beautiful environment is of paramount importance for our community, our economy and our lifestyle, so we value the input of MEAG to ensure our actions now ensure that future generations can enjoy it,” he said.

The City highlighted the contribution of long-term MEAG members Allison Dixon and Shirley Joiner.

Both have made significant contributions to protecting Mandurah’s environment over an extended period.

Members volunteer at least half a day on a monthly basis to provide the City with current local environmental information, so that the decision-making is fully informed.
