Bushfire

Bushfire
  • Varighet: 4 Timer (ca.)

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
