PROUDLY SUPPORTED BY City of Swan

This annual environmental art project provides an opportunity for primary school children in the City of Swan to engage with local and global environmental issues and promote a positive message about the importance of protecting the earth.


THINGS WITH WINGS

This year’s theme Things with Wings encourages focus on local native birds, bats and insects, but also a broader environmental concept of the role of pollinators in ecosystems. Exploration of pollination systems will enhance ecosystem literacy through students developing an understanding of the interdependencies between plants and animals.
