There are many ways young people can get involved with learning about the local environment.
By joining the River Murray Youth Council (RMYC) or going to a Young Environmental Leaders (YEL) forum, you can play a part in managing our landscapes, take action on environmental issues and have your say about ways to protect our landscapes now and into the future.
The Education program supports youth action groups in schools to help students develop leadership skills and develop a voice about environmental topics.
The Education team is able to mentor student environment and youth action groups and assists them to develop plans and projects within their schools. The Education team also has a number of resources that can assist student groups to explore sustainability.
If you are a student in the Murraylands and Riverland region and would like to start an environment group at school, speak to your teacher and ask them to contact an Education Officer.
