​ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

LEARNING FOR LIFE


Te Kōhaka o Tūhaitara Trust provides environmental education to many of North Canterbury and Christchurch's primary and secondary schools. These range from regular fortnightly sessions through to a few visits per year.

 

The modules are based around our Biota Node development (see the projects page) and provide for a mix of theory and experiential learning.

 

The Trust has developed our own learning resources and supplements these with visits by topic experts covering subjects including freshwater, invertebrates, microscopy and animal pest control.
