Date: Term 4 2014        
Location: Hollybank Forest Reserve

Intended Audience: Primary schools - Launceston and North East

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.

Costs: $150 per class group per day. Schools arrange own transport. Two classes per day preferred. For school groups using externally hired transport, a $100 bus subsidy is available - please ask for more details.
