About the education program
The Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board’s Education Program offers opportunities for young people, educators and community members to get out into their local environment and learn how to manage natural resources sustainably.
The program works towards enabling people to develop a love for, and value of their local landscapes.
The Education team is passionate about the program and working with schools and community to develop strong connections.
- Creating positive behaviour change and building leadership capacity through increased knowledge, skills and participation to manage local landscapes.
- Providing opportunities for young people to connect with and develop a love for nature and their local landscape.
- Building a community that is well informed, empowered to take action and has the ability to adapt to change.
What we offer
The Education team continues to update and improve the program based on feedback from educators and students, ensuring that activities are relevant, engaging and fit within the curriculum.
Programs and sessions will be offered each term focusing on themes set by the education team. The themes for 2023 are:
Term 1: Healthy natural landscapes
Term 2: Sustainable farming
Term 3: Sustainable water use
Term 4: Healthy rivers and wetlands
If your class is already undertaking an environmental/sustainability theme or unit of work (different to the themes listed above), contact an Education Officer to talk about how the Education Program can assist and add value to the lessons.
The Education Program is supported by the Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board through funding from the landscape levies.
