Brisbane has two environment centres at Boondall Wetlands and Downfall Creek and encourages guided walks and activities in the environment with various free and low cost activities and programs such as Brisbane City Council's Environmental Learning Program.
Environment centres help achieve the Brisbane Vision goal to be a clean, green city by:
- being a facility of environmental communication and learning
- creating sustainable communities through environmental programs
- engaging communities in the sustainable use of Brisbane's natural areas with activities such as canoeing, bush walks and bird watching.
The Boondall Wetlands Environment Centre is in the Boondall Wetlands Reserve. Visitors can learn about the importance of wetlands to the community and the environment.
Council's Environment Centres offer an Australian Curriculum integrated Environmental Learning Program designed for Prep to year 12 school students.
