Bush Skills 4 Youth

Bush Skills 4 Youth (BS4Y) program is supported by funding from the EMRC and Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program.

The program aims to provide young people with opportunities to:

  • develop an awareness and appreciation of their local natural environment

  • develop skills on how to preserve their local natural environment

  • become environmental stewards into the future.

Each year a series of free workshops are conducted in bush areas throughout the Eastern Metropolitan Region. Workshops with schools and youth groups  take place  during the term with community workshops in the holidays.
