Forest Eco-Explorers

The evergreen forests in Central Taiwan with so many broadleaf species available are the dominant species of forest in the world. Due to the complexity of climate feedback systems and ecosystem processes, the current and future interactions between the subtropical low- and mid-elevation broadleaf forests and climate change processes become a complex topic.

What: The Museum's Naturalist Center has an array of plant samples including seeds, leaves, logs, branches etc. for visitors to investigate and stories behind them to explore. To offer a balance of in-classroom learning and outdoor field experiences, the Center hosts the day camp that features discovery-based learning, experienced educators, and loads of fun. Kids as well as adults will discover the wonders of the broadleaf plants and their habitats in Central Taiwan's low- and mid-elevation forests through hands-on outdoor exploration, stories, arts/crafts, and more.
