Landcare Australia’s Junior Landcare program provides children the opportunity to play an active role in ensuring the safe future of their environment.

Junior Landcare offers grants programs, educations resources, campaigns and connections to other environmental organisations.

Junior Landcare resources can be used at home, in the classroom or with a youth group, and provides children with an opportunity to become:

  • Aware of environmental issues and sustainability
  • Empowered to take meaningful action to restore, enhance and protect the environment
  • Active in their local community to be the next generation of Landcarers.  

The Junior Landcare Learning Centre provides age appropriate activities aligned to the school curriculum. Ideal for early learning centres, primary schools, before and after school centres and youth groups, the activities help educators, parents and children build knowledge about:

  • Food production
  • Biodiversity
  • First Nations perspectives
  • Waste management.

Junior Landcare helps to bring sustainability and environmental education into homes, classrooms and communities across Australia so that children can experience hands-on learning on how they can care for the environment.
