AN interest in the reeds in the creek at Moulder Park has resulted in a prestigious award for Bailey Dickinson-Bubb.
Bailey, 9, received a highly commended in the Young Legends category at the Keep Australia Beautiful awards, which was at last presented to him last week.

Bailey started a project documenting the wildlife around Blackmans Swamp Creek after his mother, Sandra, found an article on reeds.
“I learned that it flattens down when the rain comes and if there’s too much, the water will start eroding the banks,” he said.
He was able to travel on the bus tour with the judges, seeing the compost and stormwater harvesting systems in action.
Bailey also has an entry in Waste 2 Art and hopes to one day become a geologist.
