Great Western Woodlands



This magnificent ecosystem is the largest intact, mediterranean woodland left in the WORLD! Through Millennium Kids, I’ve been involved in various youth education programs in the Woodland during the last year which aim to engage kids with this area and take ownership to promote its conservation.

One such activity was a Youth Citizen Science Camp which I’ve just returned from, where we spent 10 days in the Woodland teaching kids about the environment and human impacts. We had the pleasure of working with five Year 10 students from John Baptist College in Kalgoorlie, all of whom we got to know quite well by the end of the trip. We were so pleased watching the kids learn to tune into their environment and become valuable interpreters of the land and human impacts.

You can view a bunch of photos from the trip here. For more information about Millennium Kids, visit their website www.millenniumkids.com.au.
