The participants will travel along the forest of ravines and slopes, stacks lasting around 1,5 km. During the walk, the participants will study the types of forest plants and mushrooms, remember their names and characteristics, visit Dauginčiai outcrop, i.e. the Switzerland of Lithuania on the cliff of the river Minija, Dauginčiai hillfort and the old cemetery.

Duration of the class: ~ 2-3 hours (depending on the capacity of the group, season). Preparation: Proper clothing and footwear (taking into account the weather conditions) are necessary. Products are provided for fulfilment of the assignments. We also organise other educational classes taking into account your preferences or chosen objects. Besides, we conduct marches on recreational paths, on the route offered by us or chosen by yourself. We can tailor any educational programme to a different age group.
