Wood as a Resource (Design & Tech)

Excursion Program Overview

State forests are managed for multiple uses, including the provision of timber resources. Explore the use of forests as a source of timber for a range of uses.

Explore:

  • The path taken from forest to hardware supplier
  • The role of forest managers and consumers in a sustainable timber industry
  • A clear felled logging coupe
  • Protected Cool Temperate Rainforest
  • Mountain Ash forest that has regenerated from the 1939 Black Friday bushfires

Workbooks will be provided so you can make a copy for each student to use on the day to guide their forest investigation.

What to bring: Your bus is required to accompany the program, clipboards, copy of worksheets for each student (or print worksheet on cardboard so there is no need for a clipboard) and pens.
