The Centre delivers innovative and contextually relevant teaching and learning programs that support our vision to promote environmental education by providing:

  • diverse learning experiences in urban settings

  • professional learning. 

Our Environmental and Zoo Education Centre network vision is:

Leading environmental education to empower learners for a sustainable future.

Our educational programs incorporate environmental / sustainability perspectives and are available for students from Kindergarten to Year 12. Fieldwork programs cover most curriculum areas and are usually conducted over a full day. Cost is minimal and multiple classes can be catered for by arrangement.

All Environmental Education Centres in NSW provide support and advice to teachers and school communities to assist them in integrating sustainability education objectives across all key learning areas, as well as support for the implementation of the Sustainability Education Policy For Schools.
