Ecosystem Explorers Excursion
Spend the day in your local forest and explore the relationships between living and non-living components of a forest ecosystem and how these are affected by the local environment. Examine the role of trees in a forest system as they grow and change. Investigate the life cycle of a tree and understand the factors that contribute to its growth and survival. Build a picture of the different ways that people interact with the forest and explore the complexities of the use and sustainable management of natural resources.
The Year 3/4 program costs $150 per class. An invoice will be sent to the school following your excursion. School groups using externally hired transport may apply for a $100 bus subsidy.
