ENVIROQUEST: A New Education Program at the Australian National Botanic Gardens

Australia’s Biodiversity: What makes Australia’s so unique? is the theme of the Australian National Botanic Gardens’ inaugural EnviroQuest.

EnviroQuest is a multidiscipline outreach program that fosters enthusiasm for environmental education and encourages students to engage in a range of learning styles. The program creates a context for connecting teaching and learning across the curriculum whilst encouraging independent and reflective learners.

Students can undertake a range of quest challenges such as creative writing, botanical fashion, Aussie art, produce a school newsletter and habitat restoration. In 2010 International Year of Biodiversity the Quest challenges are themed around Australia’s unique biodiversity.
