Ecological education being one of the primary objectives of the
Foundation, nature education programmers for specific target
groups such as school children were initiated by the Foundation
way back in 1982. Till date, the Foundation has organized 3,322
camps which have benefited more than 1.87 lakh school children and 10,000 teachers. Special camping sites at Indroda
Nature Park (INP) and Hingolgadh Sanctuary (HS) have been developed for this purpose. The Foundation organizes
about 100 nature education camps every year covering about 5,000
students and 300 teachers. During each camp, participants stay
in the wild for two nights and three days.
Recently, GEER Foundation has developed a wilderness park in the
eastern part of the Indroda Nature Park with good camping
facilities viz. good dense forest, tents, cottages,
amphitheatre, wildlife interpretation centre etc.
