Did you know that I loved it yesterday? My favourite was tree-hugging because I love using my five senses but licking the tree wasn’t yummy. I also remember 1. clay 2. silt, 3. sand 4. gravel. It was really fun learning.

Dear Ganaraska Staff. Thank you for giving me the experience of a life time. I very much appreciate (teacher) Ali helping me to overcome my fears in the forest. She showed me that at night the forest is actually very cool. Now I don’t need to be scared and now I can be brave and enjoy the forest. I really appreciate you all putting up with us for 2.5 days.

Thank you so very much for making our visit memorable. I can say with no exaggeration that this was one of the best -- if not the best -- of the school trips I've been on. I truly appreciate the wonderful content provided by all the staff, and as for the facilities...you have heated floors!

I know I speak for my colleagues when I say that the Ganaraska Forest experience has left an indelible impression on us.
