An Owl Story - the calls of boobooks once were common around the ErinEarth neighbourhood, but where have they gone and why? The owl story tells you.
Tom the Tortoise was rescued as a very young, very small tortoise. He lived in a tank cared for by a family for 6 years. He grew and became too big for his tank. His family decided that Tom would be happier in the dam at ErinEarth and released him here in October 2010.
Here are some of the schools who have visited ErinEarth. Teachers can arrange visits - details are in "For Teachers - School visits".
ErinEarth welcomed Mater Dei's Second Class together with their teachers and parents on 23 July 2008. Beautiful sunshine made the garden warm despite the cold night. The kids were intrigued by ice on the birdbath.

Henschke kids visited again in 2010 and collected some tadpoles. These grew in the classroom and started growing legs. They were released back into the ErinEarth dam on 2 December 2010. Click here to see their release.
The Kids' pages are for primary school children, providing material to complement the environmental curriculum from K to 6. We plan to have a "table" where kids can post questions, send photos or their observations. Activities will be grouped for each age: years 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6.
We are planning these pages to be exciting and fun places for kids to visit and come back to. We welcome your suggestions for content and presentation - please use the contact page.
Details of the primary schools' environmental curriculum, educational resources and details for arranging school visits are in the "For Teachers" sections.
