Excursions and Incursions

The Cooks River Alliance works with Environmental Education Centres (EEC) at Kamay Botany Bay and Georges River (GREEC), to provide excursions and incursions to schools throughout the Cooks River catchment. Programs will be delivered by qualified professional Department of Education teachers and can be done in-school at a range of local sites.

How It Works:

  1. Teachers identify an opportunity for a curriculum-linked field study activity.
  2. Contact GREEC or Kamay Botany Bay, depending on which is closest.
  3. Contact your local council to find out if a subsidy is available (currently available through Canterbury Bankstown and Strathfield Councils).
  4. Organise a date and time for excursion/incursion. Book the date with your local EEC.

Dates are available for terms 1 & 2, 2024.

Cooks River Rescue

This program develops environmentally literate students to lead changes that positively impact the Cooks River, focusing on the issues and actions that can be championed by school students to address stormwater pollution.

The Cooks River Rescue Education Pack is located here.

Cooks River Catchment Model

The Cooks River Catchment Model is an engaging way to teach students about the catchment and the impacts of stormwater pollution. To enquire about the catchment model availability during school excursions and incursions, contact the Cooks River Alliance team at info@cooksriver.org.au.
