Environmental Education

Our bushland reserves preserve the homes of amazing plants and animals, providing unique opportunities to explore native wildlife, wildflowers and other indigenous vegetation in our own backyards.

With over 20 bushland reserves throughout the municipality, many of these areas contain indigenous vegetation that existed before development. 

Find out more about our waste and environmental education programs and initiatives below.
