Currawong Bush Park is a special place for students to learn about our local wildlife and habitat.

For the duration of Term two, Council is running a series of education programs for all Manningham primary schools hosted at Currawong Bush Park. These programs focus on the natural environment with a range of activities including nature stewardship, environmental leadership, waste and recycling and biodiversity education. Each participating school is also allocated their own day of fun learning activities.

Recently a special feature of the Term two program has been the inclusion of a Wurundjeri education session and guided walk, in partnership with the Wurundjeri Cultural Services. Currawong Bush Park will also host a special recognition event with students and Traditional Owners to coincide with Reconciliation Week (27 May to 3 June).

This term the Currawong education program has hosted nine local schools and over 550 students, a great introduction to local habitat and biodiversity for our next generation.
