Bringing classroom lessons to life in the great outdoors helps nurture their ability to make connections between the things they observe, and brings meaning and real-world relevance to the concepts they learn at school.

The middle childhood programs at Herdsman Lake Wildlife Centre seek to develop students' inquiry and reasoning skills, while also nurturing values such as respect, compassion and responsibility through learning in a nature-rich environment. Choose from four exciting programs:

  • MudNMinibeasts - Aquatic invertebrate scoop-net activity
  • Swamp Safari - Interactive guided bushwalk
  • Ancient Science - Modern science meets traditional wisdom
  • Climate Change and Wetlands - Learn about Climate Change and the impact on Wetlands
