Discover more ways to learn while enjoying nature
The new educational partnership recognises some of the state’s most significant environmental sites as learning destinations.
Run by the University of Adelaide, South Australian schools sign up to the program and encourage their students (between the ages of 5 to 18 years old) to discover what our state has to see and offer, while discovering future study and employment pathways.
Either through school programs or with their families, participation in the activities are recorded in a passport, which once completed, allows participants to receive a certificate at a ceremony hosted by the university.
This new partnership adds more environmental sites, giving children a larger scope of events and learning opportunities, allowing everyone to find something that sparks their interests. Some of the new sites include South Australia’s iconic national parks and feature walking trails, campgrounds and Park of the Month events.
