Whitehorse City Council’s Environmental Education Program is a free service run by Council officers and a team of volunteers.

The program provides environmental and sustainability education for local schools, pre-schools and a diverse range of community groups.

Formal excursions to our parks and bushland are not currently available. We are offering webinars on a range of topics to schools, based on Victorian curriculum requirements. Please contact Ian Moodie from the Environment and Education team for more details.

Topics explored include:

  • Habitats and Ecosystems
  • Adaptations
  • Water
  • Earth’s Resources
  • Daily and Seasonal Change
  • Human Impact
  • Whitehorse Through Time
  • Cultural Heritage

Most visits are to Blackburn Lake Sanctuary and Yarran Dheran, but other sites including incursions can be arranged.

A series of these activities have been aligned with The Victorian Curriculum F-10 and selected VCE subjects.


Share your love of nature with your community. We are looking for volunteers to help deliver a wide range of environmental education programs.
