Does your school provide habitat for wildlife?

Merri-bek City Council is proud to be teaming up with CERES Education to offer the Schools for Wildlife program FREE to local schools!

Through this program, students are guided to design and plant an outdoor learning space which supports student well-being and local wildlife.

Delivered via a series of incursions, students explore the importance of biodiversity and discover ways to help our wonderful wildlife, as well as getting a garden planted! Indigenous plants to get the garden growing are included.

Moomba Park Primary school in Fawkner are pleased to be a School for Wildlife after taking part in the program.

“Our CERES educator was super engaging and knowledgeable, it was clear the kids were really enjoying themselves.”

The best part of the program is that the whole school now gets to learn from and appreciate our new Indigenous garden space. We are so excited to watch it grow!” Said a teacher from Moomba Park Primary School,
