Allow us to introduce ourselves…

The Nature Education Centre (NEC) is an Adelaide based organisation intent on encouraging young people to study the natural world by interacting with it directly.


The NEC makes school visits, and loans animals, natural history specimens and a range of fascinating kits to our loyal and engaged members in order to get young people interested in the study of nature. We service schools in the Adelaide metropolitan area. Become an NEC Member today!

humble beginnings

The NEC was started as a project with the South Australian Science Teachers Association (SASTA) and is run as a non-profit organisation sharing a common passion for the study and preservation of our natural environment. Visit SASTA's website here.
