Looking to keep the kids entertained during the school hols while also helping them learn about the environment?
With over 35 environmental sustainability activities in the Junior Landcare Learning Centre, there is a lot to keep children busy. Every learning activity runs for 30 minutes with step-by-step instructions, a short story and a fun ‘did you know?’ section, plus lots of useful links and resources for more information.
Junior Landcare program manager Jo Stentiford says that “parents and carers who may not know a lot about food production, biodiversity, waste management and recycling or Indigenous perspective – the Junior Landcare Learning Centre will help you get started so you can also learn with your kids and share the experience.”
“Each learning activities includes an authentic story showcasing our Junior Landcare characters to help build formative memories. Meet Suyin, our biodiversity champion, Amir our waste management warrior, Beth the food production ambassador and Jarrah, Junior Landcare’s Indigenous perspectives leader.”
Get started by watching Junior Landcare Ambassador Costa Georgiadis and the Junior Landcare team in action. From creating food gardens to getting the buzz on bees and other beneficial insects.
What activity will you do these school holidays? Plant a food garden, create a word farm or frog garden, or even start your own compost. Junior Landcare helps young people play an active role in caring for the environment. You can explore the Junior Landcare Learning Centre at any time of the year for great ideas.
