Let Nearer to Nature come to you!

One of our experienced Nearer to Nature officers will bring the biodiversity of the Jarrah forest into your classroom. Single class or whole-of-school incursions can be arranged. In some cases, we may be able to customise a program to suit your needs.

Some excursions may also be conducted at bushland in or near your school, subject to adequate health and safety requirements being met. Please contact your local Nearer to Nature office to arrange this.
