STUDENTS from Warwick Central State School had their first taste of the bush last week, exploring Rosenthal Scrub environmental park.
Head of curriculum Robyn Marsh said the term had a focus on the environment.
"The kids have been studying biodiversity and gaining an understanding of Earth systems and the importance of looking after animals and plants," she said.
Warwick Landcare co-ordinator Catherine Potter said a lot of people did not know this land existed.
"It is about showing kids what is right on their doorstep," she said.
The park, which is open to anyone, and can be accessed via Schoch, Everest and West View roads.
