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
- 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.
