Environmental Education Promotion Program of Neishuangxi Nature Center
This project brought people closer to the forest, river basin, and the slope landform at the Neishuangxi Nature Center. The import concepts of the Neishuangxi Nature Center, Food and Agriculture, and Leave No Trace was recognized through the environmental education course.
Walk through the nursery era of the environmental education facility and field
The Neishuangxi Nature Center, located in the upper and middle stream of Shuangxi catchment area in Shilin District of Taipei City, was formerly known as “Xishan Nursery”. The Neishuangxi Nature Center is rich in ecological resources, such as animal and plant, and maintains forest and stream landscapes in good conditions with complete facilities. In 2013, the Neishuangxi Nature Center was certified to be the first environmental education facility and field that combined forest and watershed landforms in Taipei.
Leading people into low-altitude mountain with multiple directions
Based on natural resources of the Neishuangxi Nature Center, our team held environmental education promotional activities with themes on forests, streams, ecological observation and the Food and Agriculture education. Moreover, we designed different programs such as in-school education, themed activities, group appointment courses, and special events for various groups such as parents and
children, elementary school teachers and students, and youth associations and organizations.
In order to reach different audiences, our team launched a self-guided interpretation system based on the themes of the Nature Center’s environment, featured species, and the regulation of Leave No Trace. In addition, the Neishuangxi Nature Center blog was managed as a platform for introducing and registration for the public, and provided marketing in multiple ways, through press releases and Facebook fan page posts.
Our team led the public to experience and observe the Neishuangxi environment by themselves, learn more about low-altitude mountains in Taipei, and think about the relationship between urban development and environmental protection, in order to achieve environmentally friendly life styles.
