In addition to providing programs for schools, CREEC hosts a wide range of workshops and initiatives during the year for residents and visitors to the Canning community.

Many of these environmental and broader sustainability programs and initiatives are run in conjunction with local conservation groups, non-for-profit organisations, small local businesses and government agencies.

Striving to support a culturally diverse, sustainable and inclusive community, activities vary and can cater for adults, families, teenagers and young children.

DIY Home Water Audit Kit

Home Water Audit Kits are available to borrow free of charge from CREEC. The kit enables residents to identify where they use the most water in their home and provides information on simple ways to lower water wastage. Each kit includes a step-by-step guide and handy tools to complete a household water use audit.

The Turtle Watch program is dedicated to providing information about the Oblong or Long-neck Turtle of the south-west of Western Australia.
