On Sunday day of June 20, 2010 the program was filled with forest ecology education program by Kang Away from Gunung Gede National Park Pangrango. We learnt forest ecology with trekking along the lines of interpretation. Kang Away explained to us all about the ecology of the forest in the path of interpretation . We, people and children , were very happy to listen to explanations about the forest ecology. The lesson was very interesting and valuable.
After field learning the ecology of forest we planted trees for reforestation and tree adoption . This is a good education for the children in order them to love plants and our planet This tree planting activities were also conducted by our children . So they could appreciate the significance and value of the trees for humans .
When we finished planting trees we made a family photo as it is shown above. Unfortunately, there were many of us did not showed up in the photograph . After taking photos we ate rice liwet , special food of Aranya Giri Sakta Family .
