Charlotte Vaughan Education and Learning Manager and Kiely O’Flaherty School’s Program Coordinator Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority
Kings Park Education and Learning provides hands-on, inquiry based and immersive learning experiences for kindergarten to tertiary-aged students. Our suite of innovative school education programs supports the Western Australian Curriculum whilst highlighting the unique plants, people and places of Western Australian and the actions we can all take as a connected community to ensure a sustainable future. In 2021 the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority (BGPA) signed up to the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration as part of an ongoing commitment to protecting local biodiversity. Education in partnership with scientific research, bushland restoration and native plant conservation is the cornerstone of BGPAs ongoing efforts towards #GenerationRestoration.
“Equipped with skills to lead at school and in their community, students can become custodians for environmental change and join Kings Park in the global movement to restore our world.”
