FORRU-CMUs School Support Program

As children have the most to gain from forest restoration, FORRU-CMU places emphasis on this age group for education. FORRU-CMU works with both local and international schools. Activities for schools can include a visit by the FORRU education team to the school or a visit by the school 
to FORRU's 
nurseries or field sites, including guided walks in nature trail.

Visits to a nursery usually entail nursery modules such as how to pot seedlings correctly, basic facts about fruits and seeds, different seed structures and how seeds are dispersed, as well as nursery care for growing trees. Then the kids are taken along the Fig Trail through Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, to visit the biggest tree on the mountain, which takes around an hour. The walk is easy and we stop along the way to talk with the children about forest regeneration, biodiversity and view some of the most interesting plant species in evergreen forest.

We have some fun educational resources about forest restoration we have compiled. Please check them from education resources.
