Waroona District High School is proud to have run the Bush Ranger Cadets program since 2005. Bush Rangers is a nature conservation program for young Western Australians where the Cadets have the opportunity to take part in personal development training and actively participate in nature conservation projects specific to our local area.
The Cadets have the opportunity to participate in:
- Project excursions (i.e. Tidy Towns, Harvey River monitoring, pest weed management, Bandicoot Brook Reserve monitoring)
- Mammal trapping (Lane Poole Reserve, Dwellingup)
- 6 Seasons garden development
- Kitchen garden development
To assist in the delivery of the program, the Waroona District High School Cadet Unit has developed strong partnerships with organisations such as:
- Harvey River Restoration Taskforce;
- Peel Harvey Biosecurity Group;
- Shire of Waroona;
- Department of Biosecurity, Conservation and Attractions – Parks and Wildlife Service
Bush Rangers WA is an endorsed program with the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA). With the successful completion of individual modules throughout the year, students will gain credit points towards their year 12 WACE graduation.
