Take your students outside this summer

This summer the Peri-urban Environmental Biosecurity Network needs your help. 

Get your students involved in some citizen science while they learn about some of NSW’s target invasive pests.

With this quick activity you will: 

  • deliver a hands-on activity in your school grounds that contributes to the important biosecurity surveillance of NSW

  • help biosecurity staff monitor the state for some of the pests of greatest concern in NSW right now

  • give your students an insight into one of the many science careers in agriculture and natural resource management

  • get your students outside for some authentic learning!
