Tatachilla Lutheran College 2017

A nature based outdoor educational facility

The EcoClassroom is a 2.2 ha revegetated site, modelled on natural ecosystems that once existed in the McLaren Vale region. Officially opening in 2000, it is a unique resource, created to develop in students and visitors a sense of the importance of nature and the natural process. The intention is to promote an attitude of enjoyment, whilst at the same time, a caring and responsible approach towards the environment, with the aim of making a difference in the world beyond. The area is home to native fauna including Brush-Tailed Bettongs, Long-Nosed Potoroos and Tammar Wallabies. Visitors to the EcoClassroom experience hands-on activities through a range of learning areas including macro-invertebrate investigation, native fauna monitoring and vegetation associations. 

Recognition of achievement awards

The EcoClassroom has received much recognition and has been the recipient of a number of awards locally, nationally and internationally.

In 2018 the EcoClassroom won the Open Category of the City of Onkaparinga  Mayor's Garden Award for Outstanding Winning Garden.
