NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service offers programs for students from primary and secondary schools and in some regions, TAFE colleges and universities.

Students explore and investigate the environment and special sites in national parks and reserves led by rangers and guides. In some locations Aboriginal Discovery rangers and local community members spend time with the students to share their knowledge, culture and heritage.

The activities are linked to the curriculum for all stages.
