National Museum Holds 3rd Nature Walk in Baler, Aurora

National Museum Holds 3rd Nature Walk in Baler, Aurora

This is from the National Museum website. I think it’s a great tour package. If  I’m not living here in Baler, I will sign up for this. The tour price is 6,500 bucks and includes transportation, meals and snacks.

After conquering the magnificence of Mt. Banahaw in 2009 and discovering the nature-abundant Prieto-Diaz, Sorsogon in 2010, the National Museum of the Philippines, this year, brings its Nature Walk training to the panoramic Baler, Aurora.

Nature Walk is one of the regular educational activities of the National Museum organized and implemented by its Museum Education Division. It aims to disseminate the museum’s knowledge and expertise in the area of natural history, providing experiential learning in an outdoor environment for better appreciation of nature and natural heritage conservation.

The four-day training which will take place from May 3-6, 2011 in Baler, Aurora is expected to be participated in by science teachers and students, nature lovers, environmentalists and tourism officers. Facilitating the activities are experts on botany, zoology and geology both from the National Museum and other institutions.

Nature Walk 2011 includes lecture, demonstration, nature observation and other outdoor activities. Stargazing using conventional and digital device is an added exposure for participants.

For more information and reservation, please get in touch with Mr. Mel Lagartija or Ms. Rizza Salterio of the Museum Education Division at telefax no. 5270278 or email at [email protected] (news from the National Museum website)

Tourism Update

Some updates from the Provincial Tourism Office:

Mdme. Charlotte M. alerted me about a 1-day jewelry-making exhibit happening at the Baler Municipal Plaza right this very moment – March 20, 2009. Buy and patronize the products of the women of Aurora!

And the youtube page of the Aurora Tourim Office has a new video: Aurora Philippines Friday the 13th Surfari. The surf spot is Dalugan, Casiguran, Aurora. Watch.

And I discovered that they also have a flick page. Check out the Tourism Aurora Flickr Page.

A website would be good.
