Join us in the call for environmental action!

Participate in a two-part program to increase civic interest and the ability to take environmental action. Equipped with skills to lead at school and in their community, students become custodians for environmental change.

  1. Climate Watch Trail: Walk the Kings Park Education ClimateWatch Trail. Help answer questions on climate change, learn how collecting data on phenology will help scientist shape their response to climate change. Schools will take an endemic plant species back to school to foster a connection with the banksia woodland in the Perth area.  
  2. Bushland Connect: Visit Kings Park to learn how to plan and carry out action projects that tackle the big issues of human impact, biodiversity and conservation. This toolkit will empower students through inquiry-based action to take their knowledge back to their local community.

Bookings are essential and fees apply. Please refer to the Kings Park Education Cancellation Policy before booking this program.
