Environment Centres' School Learning Program
The curriculum-based school learning programs are designed to cater for all grades from prep through to year 12 and university bridging courses.
The lessons are held at Downfall Creek Bushland Centre, Boondall Wetlands Environment Centre and Karawatha Forest Discovery Centre. Some lessons can also be run as an extension activity either at your school or at a local reserve, parkland or waterway near your school.
The interactive lessons cover a variety of topics to make your school community more clean, green and sustainable including:
- biodiversity and ecosystems
- waterway health and catchments
- conservation and reserve management
- history and indigenous culture
- life cycles, food webs, living things and their needs.
