Adopt a coastline or bushland

The Adopt a Coastline or Bushland Program gives students the opportunity to take part in a free environmental program involving education, rehabilitation and protection activities along the coastline and in bushland areas.

Student outcomes

As well as covering the curriculum areas of geography and science, this program also allows students to demonstrate active citizenship through their work on this valuable community project. The program will allow students to:

  • Work with Natural Areas Officers planting local provenance species
  • Learn about the biodiversity of the coastal and bush environment
  • Contribute to their community and environmental responsibility through active citizenship
  • Understand the relationship between people and the environment with two class room presentations from environmental experts and Indigenous educators
  • Have the opportunity to display their classroom work relating to the program within the Joondalup Library.

Teaching resources

An extensive range of curriculum linked teaching resources for the coastal and bushland programs has also been developed.

These educational resources have been produced by the City of Joondalup with the expertise of a teacher and all due care has been taken to ensure accurate information has been provided and the work is Australian Curriculum aligned at the time of production.

Two excellent publications, Perth Plants and Coastal Plants are available through City of Joondalup Libraries to aid teachers in identifying species and their adaptations.
