The Western Australian (WA) Gould League (Inc) is a non-profit, independent environmental organisation that enables people to understand, appreciate and protect the environment.
The WA Gould League was formed in 1939 with Charles Hadley, who was at that time the Director of Education, as its first President. Membership rose quickly and over 18,000 school students became members by 1955.
Today, the WA Gould League continues to maintain a strong relationship with Catholic, Independent and Department of Education schools, with over 7500 students annually experiencing its environmental education programs. The environmental education experiences provided by the Centre are continually reviewed to keep pace with current educational initiatives.
