An initiative between Wattleridge Indigenous Protected Area (IPA), NCC Firesticks Project and Local schools around Guyra NSW were part of an engaging and interactive learning program that connected children with Aboriginal elders, Indigenous Protected Area Rangers and the local environment using storytelling, on-ground learning and arts and crafts.

Around 100 children and accompanying teachers visited the property over three days spending time learning how the Banbai Nation value and use local plants and animals and developing a deeper understanding and appreciation of their local environment.

The schools were able to learn first-hand about Aboriginal land management practices, culture and the importance of the Indigenous Protected Areas for protection of biodiversity values and the array of native animals and habitats within.
