Landcare Tasmania's school holiday program continues into 2024!
With a changing world, it has become increasingly vital to reconnect the younger generation with nature. Understanding the importance of this bond, our "Know Your Local Patch" program was launched last school holidays to foster a love for the environment among children.
We aim to help young people connect with their local areas, fostering a sense of curiosity, respect, and stewardship towards the environment. We encourage you to come along if you love the outdoors, animals and nature.
