If you a planning to visit us make the most of your day and investigate the many education facilities and programs we have to offer.

Environmental Management

Creating a sustainable environment is an important issue facing our community as we respond to a changing climate and increased pressure on our natural resources.  The Environmental Education Officer works with schools to assist them with practical projects and initiatives that engage students with the theme of sustainability and encourage the development of their environmental conscience.  

Wagga Wagga City Council encourages local participation in national programs such as Clean Up Australia Day and Schools National Tree Day.  The Environmental Education Officer is available upon request to conduct Urban Salinity Tours with school groups.  This tour compliments year 10 geography studies. 

A new school workshop program will be available to all primary schools within the Wagga Wagga Local Government in 2014.  More information will be available in February 2014.
