Intended Audience & Locations: Primary schools - Launceston and North East (for Hollybank) and Hobart and Southern area (for Hobart)

Come along and explore the forest from the soil to the canopy. Find out how the forest systems work, discover tiny invertebrates and measure giant trees, just some of the things we can do whilst learning about our forests; their ecology, their history and people.

The Forest Education Foundation (FEF) teachers will plan your program with you to suit your interests and curriculum requirements. All activities are hands-on, involve teamwork and are linked to the Australian Curriculum, Science. Opportunities to explore the Geography Curriculum are available.
