River Detectives

Register for the River Detectives sustainability program, which supports teachers to explore their local rivers and creeks with students.

Applications for the 2021 River Detectives Program are now open. If you would like to join the program go to 'Apply now' on the River Detectives website (link below) and we will contact you early in Term 1 to finalise the process. Applications close February 20, 2021.


Teachers, this program is designed to help you get outdoors with your students and learn more about your local waterway. It inspires schools to understand, appreciate and care for their local waterways, through a variety of engaging, practical, multi-age and cross-curricular activities.

Schools that register for the River Detectives program will have access to:

  • an interactive website
  • ‘how to’ guides
  • resources and activities linked to the Victorian Curriculum, including geography, mathematics, science and sustainability.
