Learning in the Landscape

News article |

95 students from across the region participated in the annual March in May event at Canunda National Park earlier this month.

The March in May event is supported by Friends of Canunda and Beachport Parks, National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Limestone Coast Landscape Board (LC Landscape Board). It provides students in Years 5 - 6 the opportunity to explore history, culture and the environment at the stunning Canunda National Park.

Students explored the 8.5km loop walk in the National Park while undertaking educational activities on topics such as weed control, protection of shorebirds and the history of Canunda.

The collaborative approach towards educating the next generation on local landscape issues has enabled the event to go on for over 20 years.

Damien Bickley, Limestone Coast Landscape Board Education Co-ordinator said, "the event has been successful for a number of years due to the increasing participation of schools in the region and the volunteers that support us".

"Volunteers are extremely important for large events like this and they provide integral knowledge to the students on the history of the pioneers of Canunda National Park."

"Being exposed to nature and all its beauty really enhances the learning of the day. The local landscape of Canunda National Park provides the perfect backdrop for the educational sessions provided", said Mr Bickley.
