Neralu 2017 School Project

January 9, 2017 / Team Neralu

Neralu invites your school to participate in Bengaluru’s tree festival, and to engage your students in exciting projects to explore the world of trees.

The activities are designed to stimulate students to experience and explore the flora around them. It imbibes in them a level of curiosity, and allows them to appreciate the diversity of life and an infinite variety of species that they are surrounded by. Such enriching experiences result in rich discussions and conversations, making children better observers of what surrounds them, and developing their connection with nature.

Neralu School Project

We encourage schools in the city to involve themselves and their students, pick a suitable activity from the list provided, and execute it with the help of students, teachers and parents. Document the progress, with the activities carried out over a period of time, and share the beautiful work with us. Let us work as a community to help students build an appreciation for nature at an early age, and in turn, foster their physical and intellectual growth.

The activities will help bring students outdoors and appreciate trees, thereby enabling them to observe and record the diversity of life. It is a hands-on activity and makes learning more fun.

Tree Walks for Students

We are delighted to announce tree walks that will be led by passionate field botanists, naturalists, and tree experts. These tree walks will introduce students to historical, cultural and ecological stories of the avenue trees of Bengaluru, while facilitating the identification and discovery of our city’s green heritage, the roles played by avenue trees, and the inter-dependencies of species in biodiversity. We encourage up to 10 students from each school to participate in the tree walk.
