2014 Evaluation Report

What goes on

Water is the life blood of every civilization. Participants are taken to the outer catchment that drains water through the Avon River that becomes the Swan River flowing through our capital city of Perth.

You will be given an insight into farming systems and the environmental issues that land managers face as well as some of the solutions being implemented. Field trips are a vital part of the program. 

Site visits include:

  • bushland/forest
  • the Canning river
  • a University
  • waste recycling
  • the coast
  • wetlands

Participants learn about:

  • Natural Resource Management
  • Our Water Resources
  • Marine Life
  • Our Wildlife

Activities are varied and relevant. Participants receive an abundance of resource materials and valuable contacts in a wide range of environmental sectors.

The journey ends at our beautiful Western Australian coastline to complete the picture of Catchments, Corridors and Coasts.
