We would like to invite your school to be part of the Healthy Rivers, Healthy Bays project – a Swinburne initiative raising community awareness of stormwater and litter issues across the Yarra and Dandenong catchments.

These free incursions highlight the importance of our local environment and waterways and examine how our activities impact them and the greater catchment.

Incursions include hands-on activities and games, loan water sampling kits for regular water quality testing and invitations to attend community events with local environment groups and councils.  

Sessions can be provided online or onsite at your school. All sessions are customised to highlight your school's location within a river catchment and to discuss litter problems in your school yard.
