ABS field trip to the RBG

Seventy-eight school children and eight teachers from Amman Baccalaureate School visited the Royal Botanic Garden on Wednesday October 2, 2013.

The field trip was part of the school's community service program, which specifically aims to raise the children's understanding of environmental issues.

The group sat under a Bedouin tent beside the King Talal dam reservoir and learned about the importance of water in Jordan, and ways in which water is used, conserved and protected.

They also discussed how waste is swept into rivers by wind and winter rain, and where that waste ends up. 

Eng. Kamal Nuimat spoke about how watersheds work, explained some of the water harvesting methods that are used in Jordan, and encouraged the children to make greater efforts to conserve and recycle water.
