Learning Beyond the Classroom

bakawan-trail-lessonsWelcome to a most unique educational adventure!  Here at the Environmental Education Center we have designed a wide array of “Eco-Smart” programs to expand the learning experience beyond the boundaries of the classroom and into the natural environment. This is an opportunity for students and teachers alike to enjoy the natural beauty and outstanding “living laboratory” the rain forest and marine environments offer.

Experience Them Both – Rainforest and Marine

Ocean Adventure is located at the edge of Ilanin Forest on the island of Luzon in the Philippines. This is a rare series of ecosystems including areas of:

  • Intact rainforest contiguous with undeveloped white sand beaches
  • Mangrove forests
  • Grassland and streams
  • Coral reefs

These ecosystems are rich in wildlife, including many threatened and endangered species and species endemic only to the Philippines. The triple canopy rainforest is rivaled only by similar but inaccessible forests in isolated areas of the Philippines. Within this environment students explore nature in all its richness as well as enjoying the conservation-oriented entertainment of Ocean Adventure.

Our On-Site Facilities Include

  • Aquariums
  • Marine mammal open water lagoons and pools
  • Terrestrial animal area
  • Medical laboratory
  • Veterinary clinic
  • PADI certified SCUBA and water-related sports center
  • Function rooms
  • Overnight accommodations
  • A variety of food outlets

We are proud to offer specially designed Eco-Smart activities for the International Baccalaureate and the College Board Advanced Placement. Both programs incorporate Understanding By Design and “Habits Of Mind” educational strategies. We are currently developing programs to integrate with the new Philippine curriculum.
