Supporting sustainability in schools
"Education doesn’t give you the answers, but enables you to ask the questions!" Suzanne Connelly.
Our education focus is on our Saltmarsh Threat Abatement and Recovery Project (STAR) which sees our landscape officers work on increasing the community’s knowledge of the threatened Hooded Plover and saltmarsh habitats.
Outside of the STAR project, our landscape priorities are sustainable agriculture, water, biodiversity, pest plants and animal and community. Our Sustainable Agriculture Project Officer and Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator work with farming communities to keep them up to date on relevant industry information.
As part of our Grassroots Grants program, funding is available for educational projects. Successful projects have included revegetation work at local schools and agriculture tours for community groups.
A number of resources are available for downloading and use in the classroom. These include:
