Nearer to Nature excursions provide many opportunities for students of all ages to take part in nature-based learning.

Programs have three elements, linked to the outcomes of all curriculum learning areas:

  • professional development for teachers;
  • classroom resources; and
  • excursions or camp activities based at a number of venues in the metropolitan area and in the South West of WA.

Nearer to Nature Schools programs support students to achieve outcomes in many Australian Curriculum learning areas and understand concepts in the cross-curriculum priorities of Sustainability Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and culture.

Program content may vary between locations to accommodate the local environment and all programs meet the Department of Education and Training's excursion requirements.
