Education and volunteering

School resources

Our resources include newsletters, posters, teaching resources and factsheets.

These booklets have been developed for the council’s Learning Through Experience (LTE) programmes, which are delivered in Auckland’s regional parks by experienced teachers and park rangers. LTE provides students with experiential learning activities in the environment, and provides teachers with a range of supporting curriculum resources.

A free copy is provided when you book an LTE trip. Find out how to book on the Learning Through Experience page.
