Riverland educators are being encouraged to get on board with a local environmental education program.

The program run through the landscape board offers out of the classroom experiences, backed up with environmentally themed resources to use in the classroom.

Murraylands & Riverland Landscape Board Education Officer Rosheen Blumson (pictured) said that the Education program is all about igniting the interest of students in the environment and their local landscapes, and supporting regional schools to do this.

“Inspiring students to care about their local area and its natural resources opens the door to many interesting career options as well as encouraging them to stay involved in their local communities,” said Ms Blumson.

“By learning about the value of the natural environment and the current threats to it, we’re empowering young people to take action now for a better future” she added.

A free professional development session to learn more on the program is set to run in February, further information can be found via the local Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board.
