• Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)

Fire has been a natural part of the environment in south-west WA for millions of years. This excursion enables students to investigate a range of fire-related topics. How prepared are buildings to bushfire? What is a prescribed burn and how does it make the bush safer? What is in a Parks and Wildlife fire truck? How does the forest recover after a fire? You can create your own excursion for a single class up to a whole year level by choosing from these activities:

  • Bushfire in the landscape

  • Burn history fieldwork

  • Building assessment

  • Fire truck observation

  • Management strategies

  • Plan your response

For further information on each activity see our Years 7 – 10 excursion details document.

COST: $16 per student (minimum payment for 20 students)
