Environment centres' school learning program

Brisbane City Council's environment centres offer a unique learning experience that will immerse your students in Brisbane's natural wonders. Our curriculum-based school learning programs work to deepen students' understanding of the environment to facilitate behaviour change. This is part of our commitment to making our city clean, green and sustainable.

Our education officers use role-play, games, art and guided walks to facilitate a wider understanding of Brisbane's biodiversity in our bushland, wetland and waterway habitats. The interactive lessons cover a variety of topics including:

  • habitats, living things and their needs
  • life cycles, features and adaptations
  • food webs, biodiversity and ecosystems
  • waterway health and catchments
  • conservation and reserve management
  • waste education and sustainability.
