Learning objects Save our catchment – virtual excursion

TLF ID M025282

This virtual excursion offers twelve video lessons that form a sample investigation of pest species invading Australian riparian zones. Filmed on Bundjalung Country, the excursion traverses mid north coast NSW Upper Clarence River Catchment, connecting each video to companion classroom and field learning tasks. The invasive, noxious weed Cats Claw Creeper threatens this sample riparian zone and highlights complex challenges to sustainable conservation of its precious waterways. Students and teachers are encouraged to identify their own sites for investigation, promoting knowledge systems for healthier catchments in local areas across NSW.
