The Landcare Education Program
Landcare and Parkcare groups operate across the Ginninderra Creek Catchment to improve and sustain the health of the catchment landscape; including on public lands and reserves. These volunteer groups are affiliated with the Ginninderra Catchment Group with provides coordination and support.
Landcare and Parkcare groups undertake a range of on-ground activities including landscape revegetation, weed control, creek rehabilitation and wetland development and management. They also provide local support to the Ginninderra Catchment Group in the delivery of environmental education and awareness programs to schools and the broader community.
Schools can involve their teachers and students in a range of Landcare activities that have educational, environmental and community enhancement benefits. These activities can be linked to the existing work of Landcare and Parkcare Groups or can be specifically tailored to meet the individual needs of schools.
Activities can include:
- Improving the landscape health of school premises.
- Adopting an area beyond the school grounds for landscape improvement
- Participating in education activities to improve knowledge and understanding of catchment management and the impact of urban and other development on catchment health.
- Receiving training in landscape vegetation.
