Pack a hat, your walking shoes, and get ready to unlock the potential of the Botanic Gardens as a learning experience that stretches across curriculum areas!

Join our incredible Botanical Educators for a day in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, as they lead you through three of our updated trails!

You will experience three of our most popular trails as they are delivered to students; the Adaptations, Pollination and Sensory trails.

Let our expert botanical educators guide you through the Gardens and be inspired with fresh ideas on how to deliver outdoor nature experiences.

Apply your learnings during your next visit to the Gardens to ignite your students’ sense of wonder, curiosity and love of learning.

You can even use some of these practices back in-class to engage your class with the natural world in their own school!

Participating educators will enter a draw to win a free educator-led experience for their class, a deck of our brand-new curiosity cards and a copy of the 'Kitchen Garden, A Beginner's Guide' book by Bruce Morphett.

The content presented across the trails will be relevant to HASS, Geography, Science, STEM, Sustainability and Wellbeing across all year levels in the curriculum.

This professional learning session will support you in demonstrating the following AITSL Australian Professional Standards for Teacher:

1.2 Understand how students learn
2.1 Content and teaching strategies of the teaching area
6.2 Engage in professional learning and improve practice
7.4 Engage with professional teaching networks and broader communities

A certificate will be provided with 4-hours professional development credit.

Light morning refreshments and complimentary parking (Hackney Road and Plane Tree Drive) will be provided.
