Inspiring the next generation
Experience has shown that education helps to instil a greater sense of care for, and connection to nature. Through our school’s nestbox program and development of learning material, Glideways helps to raise awareness of biodiversity and the benefits of a healthy environment for both people and nature.
In 2016, we worked in close collaboration with the NSW Office of Environment & Heritage, Department of Education and Training and local teachers with support from the NSW Environmental Trust to develop a Teaching Package for Stage 3 NSW students. Funding will be sought to develop similar packages for other primary school and secondary school grades.
Wildlife Corridors for Kids – Stage 3 Teaching Package
This two semester unit was developed to assist Stage 3 NSW students to learn about and understand the importance and need for connectivity conservation and the value of large landscape projects such as the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative. The package is designed to make it easy for teachers to deliver a range of Stage 3 learning outcomes across a spectrum of K-10 and K-6 syllabuses.
