Our natural environment needs your eyes and ears!


Little is known about the impact of climate change on Australia's plants and animals. As part of their environmental science  curriculum, St. Joseph's College in Geelong, VIC has developed a ClimateWatch trail to help teach students about climate change and biodiversity.  

Why get involved?

  • Learn how climate change is affecting our wildlife.
  • Learn about phenology and why it's important to monitor these seasonal cycles.
  • Make a real difference in your local community!

How to get involved?

  • Want to walk the trail again? Download a recording sheet and species guide from this page to mark your observations. Remember to enter all your observations into the ClimateWatch website when you get back to a computer.
  • The trail can be explored for short or long walks, it's up to you. Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes, a hat and sunscreen, and have some water with you.

This is a private trail developed for use by the staff and students at St. Joseph's College in Geelong, VIC.  If you are interested in creating a similar trail for your school, please contact us and review our Create a Trail page.  

This trail was developed by St. Joseph's College
