As children return to their places of daily learning – including regular outdoor experiences will help regulate their emotional and mental health. It will also support them to feel connected to place and empower them to take action in their own backyards, schools and communities.
Get started with a Junior Landcare Learning Activity by watching Costa and the Junior Landcare team in action. The videos introduce various Junior Landcare learning activities in preparation for starting the activity at home, school or with a community group.
The Just for Kids activities have been developed to help children at home explore Junior Landcare and create their own ideas. The activity sheets are based on the activities in the Junior Landcare Learning Centre, and focus on four key areas: food production, biodiversity, waste management and indigenous perspectives. Visit Just for Kids and explore the Junior Landcare Learning Centre.
We all have the power to help keep our coastlines, rivers, lakes, swamps, creeks, floodplains, billabongs and estuaries clean by diverting rubbish from our waterways. This can be done with regular clean-ups, picking up litter when you see it, and changing our behaviour such as limiting our use of single-use plastic. Junior Landcare have created a Learning Activity for children at home, at school or with a youth group or Coastcare group host their own waterways clean-up.
