Otari Enviroschools Workshops: Experiencing the Bush
Our school council envirogroup spent the day last Wednesday at Otari Bush. We did a series of workshops to help us understand the roles of all the creatures in the bush and how they live symbiotically. We got right into it, observing closely, investigating and experimenting. The bird life and the bush were equally incredible.
What do you see when you really look closely? Do you see things with fresh eyes? Do you see things as they are? You get to see the bush in detail when you lie down, look in the undergrowth and then lie back and let your dreams fly into the canopy.
When you look closely you see things differently or as they are. This is a drawing of what we saw.
