A
day in the wood – Thursday, 20

Surviving
freetime without technical equipment

Humans
and animals should be able to live in harmony when they share the
same place.

The
woods around us are such a place. Many years ago the parents and
grandparents of today’s schoolkids used to play in nature around
the towns and villages. Today it is not so common to spend freetime
outside and many children don’t know how to behave when they go
into the wood. It is not only a playground, it is the home of many
animals.

On
Thursday, 20th July 2017, 28 students went to “Letschower Wald”
with their teacher and some parents. When they arrived they met the
forester. They started with a quiz about wild animals. The adults
were surprised about the knowledge of the young students. Lots of them
have pets at home and know how to care for them. Then they learned
how to “read” animal traces. They got a lot of information about
wildlife and the ecosystem wood and collected ideas about how they
can support this system. Cleaning Schwaan and the woods around is one
step in that direction.
