Learning about nature can enrich school curriculums and enable students to gain the skills and knowledge needed to become environmentally conscious citizens.
NPWS offers a range of education programs which give students the opportunity to explore our conservation areas and learn about nature, conservation, Aboriginal culture and historic heritage and more.
School excursions allow students the opportunity to explore and investigate biodiversity hotspots and places of cultural significance, led by rangers and guides. In some locations, NPWS Aboriginal guides and local community members spend time with students to share their vast knowledge.
If students are unable to visit our parks in person, some programs can be delivered at schools, with a wealth of resources available online for both students and teachers.
NPWS education programs are available for primary, secondary and tertiary students, and, in some regions, TAFE colleges and universities.
