Councils across the region will be acknowledging National Sorry Day tomorrow at various locations across the region.  
 
Mount Alexander shire CEO Darren Fuzzard told Robbo on the Wake Up Call that an event is planned for Castlemaine Botanical Gardens at 10am. 
 
"Uncle Rick Nelson, the Dja Dja Wurrung Elder, will conduct a smoking ceremony and welcome to country," he said.
 
He said those attending the event will hear "personal stories" from those impacted by the Stolen Generations.
