Learning and teaching

In and around the forest there is much to be discovered and learnt; not only by children but also by adults and even by “old hands” in forestry. Forest education is used to teach children and adolescents about the forest; adults mainly obtain their information through forest public relations; foresters are introduced to new concepts during their education and training; whilst in the rubrics forest history or world forestry there is something on offer for everyone.
