Offer for schools

Come and visit us in a natural setting or we can visit you. We offer free programmes to kindergartens, primary schools and summer camps.

Forest pedagogues of Vojenské lesy a statky provide their programmes to the public free of charge. The extent and content of a particular event is always agreed upon in person. Most often, the programme takes the form of a walk with foresters in places where we operate. Children visit various marked stations with tasks and demonstrations, they learn how to recognise trees, herbs and shrubs, how to determine their age; they meet foresters and hunters as well as their assistants (draught horses, hunting dogs). The programme is interspersed with entertaining games and pleasurable activities, such as sausage roasting.

Where can you find us?

The biggest forest pedagogy centre was developed by Vojenské lesy a statky ČR, s. p. in the Mimoň division in the former military district of Ralsko, where the Information Centre in Hradčany is open to the public, being connected with the Jeřáb nature trail. However, you can encounter the forest pedagogy of VLS ČR in other localities too, operated by our divisions:

• Doupovské Mountains, Karlovy Vary region,
• Brdy between Jince and Klatovy,
• between Český Krumlov, Volary and Horní Planá na Šumavě
• Oderská Highlands near Olomouc
• Drahanská Highlands near Prostějov

Schools, summer camps as well as other groups can book a date all year long and visit the woods managed by VLS ČR, s. p.

We can arrange a programme directly at your school or we can agree on the participation of VLS forest pedagogues during your event.

If you are interested, contact us, we will be pleased to welcome you. More information on the programme and booking of individual dates is provided by:
