All classes visit a restored urban wetland

All classes at Al Qamar got to go visit a restored urban wetland right in the middle of Chennai.  

Learning about the rivers in Chennai

The goal was to introduce children to natural beauty and local flora, fauna, wetlands and forests.  

Tracing tree bark
The Pitchandikulum Forest Consultants conducted an orientation walk where children learned about estuaries, backwaters, mangroves, tropical dry evergreen forests and local fauna.

The children loved the wonderful learning activities organised by the educators.  They enjoyed the pristine surroundings in the calm and peaceful walk. 

They realised the importance of working to preserve our natural heritage.
