Great Grasslands Education Resources
Love thy Grasslands! The remnant patches of Victorian Grasslands are amazing places. Did you know that they are the home to creature such as the Eastern Barred Bandicoots and Fat Tailed Dunnarts? Unfortunately though, Grasslands have a bit of a reputation issue. They have often been mistaken as disused paddocks or a pre prepared location to build a house.
With this in mind, VAEE set out on a mission: to help the Grasslands through helping teachers and students to connect to this very beautiful and unique ecosystem in their own backyards.
Blending knowledge and appreciation of the local environment with the arts, scientific principles and concepts, numeracy and literacy, VAEE have created The Great Grasslands education.
