Geography

How is the Field of Mars Reserve managed for people and the environment?

During this excursion Stage 3 students undertake geographical inquiry in Field of Mars Reserve investigating its features, human influences and natural values. In the role of environmental officers and reserve visitors, students will undertake investigations into the environmental conditions of the reserve, link these results to human influences and consider sustainable management strategies for the reserve.

Students will use geographical tools and instruments to undertake water quality tests and flora surveys. Throughout the day students will utilise the reserve’s recreational amenity, creatively recording personal experiences, guided by multiple intelligences, and providing insight into human uses. They will record observations and experiences through maps, photography and field sketches using iPads and other media.
