Jacqui took out the award at yesterday’s Australian Association for Environmental Education’s (AAEE) 31st NSW Conference in Dubbo last night. Established in 1981, the AAEE awards program is designed to recognise and encourage outstanding environmental education initiatives in individuals and groups.

“I’d like to commend and congratulate Jacqui on receiving this well deserved award,” said Mr. Imrie.
