Learning in nature
Parks have a special place in supporting early connections with nature through free, unstructured play outdoors.
Park Explorers encourages students to discover and care for their natural spaces through place based inquiry learning. The program is designed to engage upper primary school students.
Parks Victoria supports teachers and students to learn in nature through self-guided park visits or ranger-guided activities. No matter which option you choose, there are a few things to be mindful of when planning a student excursion or field trip to a park or reserve.
Learn about the ecosystems and cultural heritage that parks help protect, current issues and management strategies and the range of people and organisations involved in park management.
Our teacher portal will help you find the perfect outdoor classroom for your students.
