Three-Day Residential Earthkeepers Program
Presented in conjunction with the Shire of Yarra Ranges, the Earthkeepers program is a complete three-day/two night residential earth-education program designed to help children between 10 and 12 develop the understandings and feelings they will need to live in harmony with the earth.
The program captivates its young participants with mystery, adventure and discovery, and provides them with the skills to reassess and improve their own environmental habits. Earthkeepers is the perfect program for teachers and group leaders who are committed to giving young people a solid grounding in ecological principles and inspiring them to take action for the earth and all life.
