Mokolodi Nature Reserve Education Centre working with local schools and communities
Mokolodi Nature Reserve Education Centre were excited to receive a consignment of new PACE educational material a few months ago. The new PACE sets were introduced and distributed to Kgabosetso Primary School, one of ten schools selected by the Mokolodi Education Centre for the schools Environmental Clubs Project.
The teachers showed great interest and enthusiasm in receiving the materials and expressed that they would enjoy using them in their classroom teaching.
The School's Environmental Club has already utilised some ideas from the PACE materials in their garden project. They have planted vegetables in the garden and have used mulch to retain moisture in the soil and reduce the rate of evaporation. In addition, they planted onions in the boundaries to repel pests.
The club's garden looks fantastic, very professional. We're excited to see their produce as the season progresses.
Huge thanks to Mokolodi Nature Reserve www.mokolodi.com for partnering with us to help communities living close to wildlife, and to TUSK www.tusk.org for their belief and support for conservation education.
