Educational Programs

Bunurong Coast Education provides education about conservation and the environment to members of the SGCS and the broader community, through public presentations, excursions and our famous holiday program. What better place than the Bunurong Coast to study landforms and observe change?

Evolving bushland, seasonal beaches, rock shelves, eroding cliffs and a massive inlet system offer many settings to learn and consider human and natural environmental impacts. BCE educators understand our local conditions intimately. We have a range of programs for schools and interested groups, and can also tailor talks and excursions to your requirements.

Holiday Activities

BCE provides special holiday excursions on dinosaur digs, rockpools, stargazing, unusual animals, wildlife spotlighting, tree planting and more. See the excursion FAQ for information on what to bring and wear, meeting point and locations, and book online for scheduled activities.

Plan a School Excursion

School study excursions need to be tailored to specific dates and the tides, numbers and ages of attendees, and the relevant curriculum topics. We offer a range of programs through Bunurong Coast Education, with an interdisciplinary curriculum approach to topics in science, mathematics, humanities, english and the arts. Students on our programs explore different ways of thinking, problem-solving and communicating, as well as learning how to plan, analyse, evaluate and present their work.

Contact us to plan a presentation or excursion tailored to your school curriculum. See our Programs on rock pooling, coast and beaches, estuarine ecology, forests and woodlands, dinosaur discovery, human impact, climate change, plastics in the marine environment, and more.
