Event description

Description

Bush Blitz and the Australian National Botanic Gardens have put together a suite of engaging activities to help teachers bring topics like classification and biodiversity to life. Teachers will get hands-on experience of activities that can easily be replicated back at school.

All participants will learn simple techniques for collecting mini-beasts - an activity suited to students of any age or ability. Individuals can tailor the rest of the workshop to suit their needs, choosing from topics such as:

  • introducing classification keys

  • using online resources to identify and record sightings

  • dissecting a flower

Staff from the Australian National Botanic Gardens and Birrigai Outdoor School will also be able to answer questions about school excursions.

Arrival from 3.40pm for a 4pm start.

Afternoon tea will be provided.

Bookings are essential as places are limited. If tickets are sold out, please email bushblitz@environment.gov.au to be added to a wait list.
