Students will learn about the ecology of protected, remnant environments and how the Botanic Garden is effectively managing environmental change to enhance sustainability. Through abiotic and biotic testing, vegetation surveys, and a mapping exercise, students will analyse the effect of interactions between people, places and environments.
- Students will annonate a site map as they explore remenent environments, recording important natural and human features of the environment.
- They will use a variety of field tests and use their data to conduct an ecosystem health assessment.
- Students will also learn about environmental management strategies in practise at the Botanic Gardens and use real data to create their own urban plans for the region.
