Bay of Plenty Regional Council supports environmental learning in our region through a range of education programmes and resources.

Our aim is to develop awareness, understanding and a sense of commitment towards how we look after our environment. We help students to develop environmentally responsible attitudes and a commitment to help keep our environment a safe and secure place for all - now and in the future.
