Environmental education for students

We will be offering a wide array of content and resources across a variety of environmental themes that is sure to engage your students and foster long lasting connections with the natural environment for a sustainable future.

We are excited to be developing programs, for early years through to high school. These programs will be curriculum-linked to help you meet the learning outcomes in the National Quality Framework whilst inspiring the next generation to protect our unique flora and fauna.

There will be plenty of choice! You can access online downloadable lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations, videos and worksheets when our new learning hub opens or book incursions and excursions with our knowledgeable staff.

From working with you to plan and deliver an engaging workshop in your classroom or outdoor space to welcoming your students to IndigiScapes for workshops and activities, we are here to help. For more information on our workshop offerings visit our Planning your visit page.

Koala conservation

Redlands Coast is home to one of the most significant urban koala populations in Australia. While koala populations have diminished over the years, a viable breeding population can still be found in the area. Redland City Council is working closely with research partners and the community to conserve and support our local koalas.

You can improve the health and wellbeing of our koala population while you’re out on a walk, going for a jog or a ride. Simply record your koala sightings through Redlands Coast Koala Watch.

Learn more about koalas and how you can help on the Redland City Council website.
