With great sadness, the Eye on Nature School Days were cancelled in 2020 in order to keep our communities safe and prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Although we were unable to share the 'Adaptations in NZ' themed lessons, in person, with you; we're happy to be able to offer them virtually! We've created a number of blog posts centred around the 2020 School Days messaging and lesson plans.
Check them out on our Blog!
We look forward to seeing you all at Eye on Nature 2021!
The theme is:
'Water for Life'
The School Days see 1500 primary aged school children immersed in the Auckland Botanic Gardens beautiful surrounds.
Children aged 9-10 from South and East Auckland, many of whom have little experience of being in nature, become environmental warriors through our Eye on Nature programme!
Through the School Day platform, children spend their time with passionate environmental educators who guide them through a series of eco activities. This programme gives children experiential and action-based opportunities that will shape their attitudes and behaviours in adulthood. Children will be actively encouraged to reflect on their mental and emotional wellbeing during their time at Eye on Nature.
The School Days are free for South and East Primary Schools, including the transport!
We're on the look out for volunteers for future Eye on Nature events! Can you help?
