A special visit from our Patron, Ian Kiernan AO

Staff, Board members and Volunteers were thrilled to welcome our Patron Ian Kiernan AO to the Centre this week.  Ian was visiting to gain an update on the rapid growth of the Centre's operations in recent years and to discuss the next big project - replacing the sections of old asbestos roofing on our building.

Ian is world renowned for his amazing work with Clean Up Australia Day www.cleanup.org.au and Clean Up the World www.cleanuptheworld.org.  Whilst in Eden, Ian met with SCMDC staff to discuss establishing a display that focuses on the major issue of plastics in the ocean.  We hope to have a new display around this issue in the very near future.
