Nature-based Programs for Communities
We offer Educated by Nature Incursions that are suitable for Local Council events, community fairs and school fetes.
Educated by Nature these community focussed programs are designed to connect families with the natural world and each other through play. We believe it is important to connect the heart to nature. This connection creates an internal sense of why it’s important to change our environmental behaviours and work to find sustainable solutions for our world. Programs provide opportunities for families and children to work together and meet new people, while engaging child development skills to meet community health needs.
Our programs are developed by Trudi Bennett and Daniel Burton, primary school teachers who have experience working with families and in community development through work with local councils and other organisations. The Art of Mentoring connection modelling is also used when designing our programs, which encourages connection to self, nature and community.

"I wanted to let you know what an absolutely lovely time our group had at Rushton Park in Armadale. The facilitators were excellent and showed great skill in directing the group while allowing them to explore at their own pace. I have recommended your company to be involved with other future nature based activities that may take place as part of a City of Armadale celebrations."
