Our education programs focus on the urban water cycle.

By exploring water as a resource and the biodiversity of our waterways, we aim to enable people to better understand water use issues and how to make positive change.

Our activities support the AusVELS curriculum in the areas of science and geography and the water and biodiversity modules in ResourceSmart AuSSI Vic.
