Birkdale State School borders with Tarradarrapin Creek - a local water catchment which flows directly out into the Bay. "Alien Invasion" is a program that has been developed by the teachers at the school, to study the invasive plant and animal species currently choking the creek. The project aims to develop students scientific skills in a real world setting. The project aims to identify and manage the invasive species. Currently, resources such as water testing equipment, are not available for the students. It is proposed to purchase resources to support this important program.

This is a great program that helps teach our children the importance of protecting our environment, especially our waterways, and how so many different factors can impact it. Go Birkdale!

An Absolute project and opportunity for students and teaching staff as this creates awareness in regards to the ' Importance of Australian Environment'. This project will have a great impact in the students learning and understanding of the importance of our animals, water but importantly our environment itself. - Best wishes Birkdale!

The students at birkdale gain so much from this project. Together with the wonderful staff at indigiscapes, students learn about the invasive plants that grow alongside birkdale creek and the problems they cause to our native flora and fauna. Student are motivated to become citizen scientists and 'do something' about this problem.
