Nature Study – Nagarahole

September 10, 2016 Arivu Activities

As part of nature study an excursion to Nagarahole Wild Life Sanctuary was planned for the children of 1 to 4th standard on 1-2 September 2016. The group comprised of 32 Children, 5 Teachers, 2 Volunteers from Germany and Sri Mohan the resource person. Unlike tourists who go on a safari into the forest looking for wild animals, the Arivu team could stay amidst forest overnight and study the flora fauna and bio-diversity of the region in addition to learning about wild life.  The children were exuberant about the trip as they were trailing in a dense forest for the first time. The forest always holds some mystery for the adventurists, on the first afternoon the forest guard shared information about a dead elephant found that day. To quench the budding curiosity, the children were taken for an evening safari.  Sri Mohan, our resource person threw light on many types of trees, birds and wild animals found during the safari.  The safari sowed many doubts in young minds which resulted in a fruitful interaction with the resource person.  The night in the forest was chilling because of cold weather and wild noises. For a change, the birds of the forest woke up by the chirping noises of kids, who were enthused for an early morning trail in the forest on the 2nd day.    After the breakfast, the arivu team headed to ‘Iruppu Falls’ near Kutta Village, a water fall in the Bramhagiri Hill range created by ‘Lakshmanatirtha River’ a tributary of Kaveri. The spirit of the children was dampened to a little extent by the gushing waters.  The water fall was in its full splendor as it was the post monsoon season. So, children could not venture into the water freely for safety reasons but they had a close glimpse of the falls and could play at a safe distance. The children drenched in water and joy returned home aspiring for many more such excursions.
