Environmental Education Centres (EECs) are located across Greater Sydney supporting Department of Education and Communities schools. They provide various programs to visiting school groups depending on the unique features of their location. Programs offered are linked to NSW syllabus documents and stage groups. Pre- and post-excursion materials are provided.
The teachers from the Centres can also work in schools to support environmental programs there. Some Environmental Education Centres also provide professional learning activities for teachers. More information about EECs in NSW can be found on the Office of Environment & Heritage website.
