Kids Connecting Nature

Kids Connecting Nature delivers stimulating and hands-on incursions that empower kids to learn about and provide for local biodiversity with enthusiasm, awareness and proactive behaviour.

Importantly all our incursions are aligned to the new NSW  curriculum and easily linked to teaching outcomes. However at Kids Connecting Nature we strive to offer more than meet curriculum objectives. Research clearly shows the link between the growing disassociation with nature and biodiversity decline. We want to ignite children’s love and fascination for nature, instill in them the skills to identify and nurture their local biodiversity, and inspire them to share their knowledge with others.

Abbie Mitchell holds a Masters in Wildlife Management from Macquarie University and expertise in providing informative and fun biodiversity education for children. She has successfully conducted environmental workshops in primary schools since 2007, and continues to lead school groups on excursions for NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and EcoXplore. Abbie’s new academic children’s book ‘A Hollow is a Home’ (CSIRO) is due out mid 2019 – look out for workshops to support this important topic!

With exciting plans for a suite of fun, purposeful, locally focused workshops, we look forward to working together to create impassioned environmental champions.
