Our Environmental Education Centre offers exciting activities to school groups and youth groups.
These programmes complement the work done in schools and have been carefully designed to connect with the South African curriculum.
Offered by well qualified, vibrant and effective environmental educators, the activities are balanced with fun and messages aimed at empowering the youth to make a difference.
Our activities are designed to lead learners to discover and learn about the freshwater, coastal and marine environments.
Should you wish your activity to be a different topic, we would be happy to discuss your requirements and structure an activity accordingly.
