Education

Care for Hedland has a primary objective to raise awareness of local environmental issues of the Hedland township as well as the surrounding Pilbara region. 

Communicating directly with government, businesses, industries and the whole community is a priority of the Association, to ensure that environmental goals for Hedland are achieved.

The Education Program aims to provide appropriate methods for providing environmental education and awareness of local issues to the diverse target market.

Currently, Care for Hedland hosts a range of informative training sessions and workshops for the community to be involved in to learn about particular conservation issues of the town (ie. Gardening workshops, turtle monitoring training etc).

Association members meet monthly to discuss ways in which the various activities of Care for Hedland can be expanded.

The Education Program is strongly concerned with educating children and students who are the future of Hedland. These programs aim to target pre-schoolers through to high school students through story-telling, presentations and competitions. The Education Program hopes to further engage and integrate beneficial activities with student in the future.
