Nature for Teacher Wellbeing and Learning

Make your next professional learning experience here in Kaarta Koomba, Kings Park. Our education staff provide experiences in, with and for nature to develop positive connections, nature pedagogy and increase confidence teaching outdoors.

The day can be tailored to your needs; with opportunities to hone your survival skills (navigation and shelter building), share a story around the fire*, cook damper and drink billy tea. Visit a bushland site, identify plant species, collect and clean seed and make an herbarium specimen.

This immersive workshop is fun, informative and a great opportunity to ask questions on environmental education.
